The only true opera from the pen of England’s greatest baroque composer, Dido and Aeneas masterfully tells the tragic story of the powerful Queen of Carthage and her ill-fated romance with the Trojan hero Aeneas. PMW’s orchestra and soloists will team up with the University of Washington Chamber Singers to present a full length concert version that includes Purcell’s sublime Welcome Song for the King’s return to court.
