San Jose Opera’s “Dido and Aeneas” w/ Nikola
November 18, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This November, the San Jose Opera is putting on a performance of Dido and Aeneas. One of our instructors, Nikola, will be playing the lead role of Dido.
“One of the earliest and most celebrated operas, Dido and Aeneas is arguably one of the most important operatic works of the 17th century. Having foresworn romantic love, Dido, Queen of Carthage, is tormented by the Trojan hero, Aeneas, who is desperate for her affections. But as their love is kindled, a powerful sorcerer plots the queen’s downfall. Through deceit, trickery, and the conjuring of a raging storm, Dido is ripped from Aeneas, in Purcell’s soaring, richly nuanced work culminating in one of opera’s greatest tragedies.” – “Dido and Aeneas”, Opera San Jose (https://www.operasj.org/dido-and-aeneas/)
