DIDO and AENEAS

by Henry Purcell

MARK MORRIS DANCE GROUP and MUSIC ENSEMBLE

Featuring Stephanie Blyth, mezzo-soprano

Dance that paints the stage with incandescent images, music that captivates, and a sizzling tale of love, betrayal and revenge! “A tour de force of artistic storytelling” (Los Angeles Times), Dido and Aeneas is a veritable feast of “delight – in sex, music, pathos, mischief and even evil” (Chicaog Tribune). And through the story floats the “astonishing voice…dark, vehement, buring” (The New York Times) of legendary opera star Stephanie Blythe, who sings the roles of the love-dazed Dido and the evil Sorceress.
