Les Fauristes Chamber Choir and Orchestra proudly present their first opera,
DIDO & AENEAS by Purcell: a daring and moving piece telling the story of two destinies torn between passion and reason.
Accompanying Les Fauristes in this timeless baroque masterpiece will be soloists from the Paris Opéra and the Clemens Non Papa Consort, together with full chamber orchestra.
Conducted by Blandine de Raulin and directed by Rufus Graham
Combining comedy and tragedy, the opera transports us to the classic era of Greek mythology.
Taken from Virgil’s epic work, the Aeneid, the work traces the story of the impossible love between Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, a Trojan prince charged with the weighty task of founding a new realm. Will Aeneas listen to his heart or his head ?
