A delightful contrast
- Purcell’s baroque Greek tragedy tells of Dido, the queen of Carthage, and the loss of her lover Aeneas leading to her grief-stricken death.
- Puccini’s comedy gem starts with a death and ends with lovers united after a farcical tussle between Gianni Schicchi and a pack of money-grabbing relatives.
Make a date to go to the Churchill Theatre for an evening that promises a delightful contrast. Both operas are sung in English. Performances are Wednesday–Saturday at 7:30, plus a 2:30 Saturday matinée.
