'Dido and Aeneas' by Henry Purcell documents the story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Prince of Troy, Aeneas. Based on book IV of Virgil’s epic poem, ‘The Aeneid’, Purcell’s opera is his first and only all-sung work.
Dido, Queen of Carthage, is in her royal court, with her attendants. Belinda, her sister and handmaid, attempts to comfort her, believing her love affair with Trojan prince Aeneas is the cause of her grief.
