Dido and Aeneas
2020 Festival Update
Out of commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our staff, artists and community, Central City Opera has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Festival until 2021 due to ongoing health concerns caused by COVID-19. We believe the decision is in the best interest of all involved and look forward to singing extraordinary stories again soon. We will be contacting all of our 2020 ticket holders directly with options including converting to donation, exchange for 2021 or a full refund. In addition, we have established the CCO COVID-19 Relief Fund to support our 2020 Festival company and Central City Opera during this challenging time.
Dido and Aeneas
We are all but playthings of the gods
Sprung from epic poetry and myth, Dido and Aeneas is an opulent tale of power and passion between two formidable rulers and the Sorceress who toys with their fates. This gem of the early music canon will be performed in an intimate, nontraditional venue, featuring singers from the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program.
Performances take place in The Lanny and Sharon Martin Foundry Rehearsal Center at 215 Eureka Street, Central City, Colo.
