Join the teens of Act Too Studio Opera Workshop in this expanded adaptation of Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, including additional material from King Arthur, The Fairy Queen and more! Written and sung in English.

Based on the fourth book of Virgil's epic poem, The Aeneid, our expanded adaptation of Purcell's short opera tells the tragic tale of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and her year-long affair with the Trojan hero, Aeneas. As their lives are manipulated by the gods in the name of Aeneas' fated future and the gods' own agendas and petty rivalries, the two are torn apart, with devastating consequences for Dido.
