Dido and Aeneas
With live orchestra and chorus

In a timeless story of love and betrayal, Mark Morris combines the Baroque vocal music of Henry Purcell's hour-long opera with his highly-detailed, signature dance vocabulary. An acclaimed work that many regard as Morris' best, the Los Angeles Times praised it as "an elegant classic ....with hundreds of ingenious touches in translations of music to movement." Morris himself danced the lead role when he debuted the piece in 1989, but he now takes the podium as conductor.

"For many people it is the greatest work Mr. Morris has ever made. What matters more, though, is that Mr. Morris has created a dazzling interpretation of Purcell’s superlative work." – New York Times
