A live music and film performance inspired by Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Taking the universal themes within Dido and Aeneas, the production focuses on four contemporary urban stories of grief, lost love, departure and death, which unfold in separate locations onstage. Using multi-media technology, cameras operated by the singers and actors cut between the narratives to focus and reveal significant details, which are projected live as part of the performance. Following a sell-out 2008 season of Lost Highway and Punch & Judy, ENO and the Young Vic celebrate the 350th anniversary of British composer Purcell’s birth with a major new production.
