'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.
The sailors sing as the Trojan fleet prepares to depart. The Sorceress outlines her plans to destroy Aeneas while he’s at sea.
