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.
Aeneas returns, having decided to ignore the advice from the gods. Dido is still distraught, and she rejects Aeneas for ever thinking about leaving her.
