Don't speak Italian? No problem! Purcell's Dido & Aeneas was one of the first operas written in English, and it's coming to Portland courtesy of The Ensemble. Both heartbreaking and sublime, Dido and Aeneas was Purcell's crowning achievement and one of the monumental works of baroque opera. Based on Virgil's Aeneid, the chamber opera tells the turbulent love story of Dido and her beloved Aeneas as they deal with political turmoil and heartbreak. Come and be swept away by the grandeur and pathos of opera.
