Dido

ENO and the Unicorn Theatre present a new production of Purcell’s masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas.

11 May - 02 Jun 2019

Belinda is the only child of Dido. A teenager like any other. We watch through her eyes as her mother – heroine, feminist icon, modern parent – slowly starts to fall apart, with tragic consequences.

ENO and the Unicorn Theatre, the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences, join forces for the first time to create a new production of Purcell’s masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas, for teenagers and adults. This show will be an incredible first experience for some, and for others, a chance to see this opera in a new light.

Directed by the Unicorn’s former Artistic Director Purni Morell and conducted by Valentina Peleggi – the newest ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellow – this reimagining of the classic tale will be performed on the Unicorn’s intimate Weston Theatre stage.
