'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 Sorceress and the two Witches conjure a storm so Dido, who is hunting in the woods, will be forced to return to her palace.
