Opera in Space are back dragging operatic performance kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. This fully immersive, electrifying production of Dido and Aeneas is Purcell as you’ve never seen him before.
This tragic tale of love and deception is performed in English and features Dido’s Lament one of the most revered arias in the operatic repertoire.
This groundbreaking promenade production leads the audience through two floors of the Bussey Building in Peckham as characters sing, dance and play, to tell the tragic story of Dido.
Purcell is one of my favourite Baroque composers. Many of the piano and harpsichord students at the SE22 Piano School play his music for exams and performances.
