The World's Greatest Music
'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.
Belinda believes the troubles in Carthage could be solved if Dido and Aeneas married, but Dido believes falling in love will make her a weak monarch.
