Dido and Aeneas

Dido and Aeneas

A timeless tale of love and tragedy with a contemporary twist will take over QPAC’s Playhouse Theatre in July, when Opera Queensland partners up with Circa for Dido and Aeneas. Mind-bending circus and magical melodies from Henry Purcell will collide at this one-of-a-kind marriage of circus and opera. Born from Virgil’s famed poem The Aeneid, this opera tells the story of star-crossed lovers Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, the shipwrecked Trojan prince. This enchanting performance will take place at QPAC’s Playhouse Theatre from July 11–27.

There’s so much more to discover, so head to the Opera Queensland website to view the full program.
