This was a great fun and diverse evening, the 2 pieces were nicely contrasting, with the space transformed in the interval, I really enjoyed the young wife, the music emulating the changing moods of the Young wife's delicate pshychosis, beautifully played by the composer. The second Act, Dido and Aeneas was excellently portrayed in an American High school, which really worked with the melodrama within the original opera as Dido decides to Kill herself so quickly a flaw I have always felt in Purcell's original score. I felt this was great evening, both Opera's were very excessable and I feel would appeal to a wide range of people, definatly check it out for yourself.
