#DidoAndAeneas

June, 2014

(Past Production)

Even though Henry Purcell’s opera, Dido and Aeneas, was first written and performed over three-hundred years ago, we believe that this opera can tell a powerful story that will resonate with contemporary audiences. In our retelling, Dido finds herself the target of social and cyber bullying after an impulsive affair with her long-time crush, Aeneas. This is a site-specific, interactive performance that explores the ways bullying can manifest in the technological era and the destructive effects it has on its victims.
