CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
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 Purcellâs birth with a major new production.Performers Susan Bickley (Dido), Katherine Manley, Lina Markeby, Eyjolfur Eyjolfsson, Madeleine Shaw, James Gower, Helen Jarmany, Adam Green, Amanda Hale, Helena Lymbery, Sandy McDade, Eamonn Mulhall, Dominic Rowan.
