About the event

English National Opera and the Unicorn join forces for the very first time to create a new production of Purcell's powerful and emotional masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas, for teenagers and adults.

Belinda is the only child of Dido. A teenager like any other, in any big city. We watch through her eyes as her mother - heroine, feminist icon, modern parent - slowly starts to fall apart, with tragic consequences.

Directed by the Unicorn's former Artistic Director Purni Morell and conducted by ENO's Valentina Peleggi, this contemporary production will be an incredible first experience for some, and for others a chance to see a familiar and much-loved opera in a new light.

Sung in English.

Age guide: 11 - adult

Duration: Duration: Approx 1 hr 15 mins
