Actéon/Dido and Aeneas


Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The Early Opera Company presents two baroque shorts: Marc-Antoine Charpentier's 'Actéon' and Henry Purcell's 'Dido and Aeneas'. Each lasting less than an hour, they pack an emotional punch infinitely mightier than their concise length, setting stories about the terrible fate of protagonists whose lives are destroyed by the forces of love, power and fate. Anna Stéphany (mezzo-soprano), Hilary Summers (contralto), Ed Lyon (tenor), Marcus Farnsworth (baritone). Directed from the harpsichordist by Christian Curnyn.
