Opera “Dido and Aeneas” to Run March 15-18

The Truman Department of Music and the Truman Opera Theatre will present Henry Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas” with performances March 15-18.

The opera, based on Virgil’s “Aeneid,” tells the fateful love story of Dido, queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, a prince of Troy, who each must choose between their love for each other and their sense of duty—choices that will ultimately affect the course of history.

Performances will take place in Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall. Show times will be at 8 p.m. March 15-17. The March 18 performance will take place at 3 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students. Tickets will be on sale in the Ophelia Parrish lobby Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and from 1:30-3:30 p.m., as well as at the door. A pre-performance talk about the opera will take place 50 minutes before each performance in Ophelia Parrish 2115.
