“Peace and I are stranger grown”
Based on the play Dido, Queen of Carthage, by Christopher Marlowe and the Opera Dido and Aeneas, by Henry Purcell with Nahum Tate’s libretto, this new Arriaga Theatre’s production is leading this two master pieces together. It tells the tragic love story of the Carthaginian Queen Dido and Aeneas, who escaped from Troy and who, having strayed from the actual sea route, landed on Carthage’s coast. A great story about wild passion, the power of feelings, ending in betrayal and farewell!
Barbora Horáková Joly conducts this play, where she’ll be guiding a basque cast, including both performers and singers. The interpretation of this work will be realized in euskara, the texts, and in the original language, english, the music.
