WORLD PREMIERE of NEW OPERA — DIDO'S GHOST
SATURDAY 5 JUNE 2021
The story of Dido and Aeneas didn’t end with Dido’s death. Errollyn Wallen takes the story forward, interweaving a full performance of Purcell’s great tragedy with her imaginative new partner-piece.

‘Remember me, but ah! Forget my fate' sings Dido at the end of Purcell’s opera. But life isn’t quite as easy as that, and some memories have a destiny of their own. Set several years after the Carthaginian queen’s death, Dido’s Ghost finds Dido’s sister Anna abandoned on the shores of Aeneas’s new kingdom, igniting a murderous jealously in Aeneas’s wife Lavinia – and as events play out, its characters confront a past that refuses to fade.

Errollyn Wallen’s new opera, based on a tale by Roman poet Ovid, embraces and complements Purcell’s original, which is performed in its entirety as the centrepiece of a drama that is both old and new. Performed by the period instruments of the Dunedin Consort, past blurs into present and memory becomes emotion in this ambitious and poignant new commission.

It is sad to hear of the passing of Sir Stephen Cleobury and condolences are extended to his family.

Several of Errollyn's choral works were recently recorded by the world renowned King's College Choir conducted by Sir Stephen Cleobury at King's College Chapel in Cambridge.

Further works will be recorded featuring King's alumni, John Butt (conducting the Dunedin Consort and performing a specially composed work for him) and Thomas Trotter.
