Queen of Carthage - City Opera
SIO Tree Grove
- Queen of Carthage is a contemporary re-imagining of Henry Purcell’s Baroque opera Dido and Aeneas set in a grove of trees overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The new libretto delves into Dido’s self-sabotage in spite of Aeneas’ love for her. The words and music combine to tell a story of betrayal, obsession and jealousy.
