Event Description

March 9-12, 7:00 p.m., 3 p.m. matinee on 3/12

Co-produced with the Willamette University Theatre Department

All is right with the world when Dido, the Queen of Carthage, finally plans to marry her true love, the Trojan hero Aeneas. However, when a sorceress plots Carthage’s demise, it is Dido and Aeneas who find themselves at the center of her master plan. Will their love—and they themselves—survive? This heart-rending romance carries the great tradition of tragic opera into the present day, exploring the eternal struggle between betrayal, power, duty, and love.
