"Touches the far corners of the heart"
About the show
The devastating heartache of Purcell’s beautiful 1689 masterpiece fills Government House Ballroom at an exclusive evening of dinner and performance. Dido, the Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, the Trojan Prince, are torn apart when witches hatch an evil plan to destroy them. Known for its exquisitely tender aria Dido’s Lament, this moving opera is filled with joy and sorrow set to pierce your heart and will transport you to another time and place.
DINNER IN THE BALLROOM
An evening set around a long-table-styled dinner inspired by Dido and Aeneas. Book with a group of friends and enjoy dinner and a performance while you raise a glass to this early music gem!
