Opera San Jose – Dido and Aeneas
November 13 - November 28$55 – $195
Opera San José returns to LIVE performances with one of opera’s most brilliant works, a thrilling new production full of drama, passion and magic!
Having foresworn romantic love, Dido, Queen of Carthage, is tormented by the Trojan hero, Aeneas, who is desperate for her affections. But as their love is kindled, a powerful sorcerer plots the queen’s downfall. Through deceit, trickery, and the conjuring of a raging storm, Dido is ripped from Aeneas, in Purcell’s soaring, richly nuanced work culminating in one of opera’s greatest tragedies.
