'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.
Meanwhile, Dido and Aeneas are hunting in the grove, making the most of its beauty. Dido hears thunder and prepares to find shelter. Aeneas is greeted by the Sorceress’ elf, in disguise as Mercury.
