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 Central City Opera House Gardens in Central City, Colo.
