Dido & Aeneas

A timeless tale of love and loss comes alive in the upcoming production of Dido and Aeneas, presented by The KL Madrigal Singers and Players. This modern interpretation of the 17th century opera by the English baroque composer Henry Purcell (1659-1695), promises to take audiences on a journey of passion, betrayal and heartbreak.

Set in ancient Carthage, Dido and Aeneas tells the story of Dido, the Queen of Carthage and her love for the Trojan hero, Aeneas. Their love flourishes, only to be thwarted by the machinations of an evil sorceress. The tale ends in tragedy, leaving audiences questioning the cost of love and its consequences.

This production promises to be a feast for the senses, featuring a talented cast of singers and glorious music by instrumentalists. From the haunting strains of the overture to the exquisite arias, Henry Purcell’s music will transport you to another time and place.

This show has something for everyone – a passionate love story, compelling singing and even a chorus of evil witches! Most importantly, the moving music of Henry Purcell, which has stood the test of time, creates a love story that anyone can relate to.

Featuring Sharlene Rani as Dido, James Long as Aeneas, Chew Shi Yun as Belinda and Yi-Ling Chaing as Sorceress, come and see Dido and Aeneas, the masterpiece of English Baroque opera. Staged at The Gardens Theater, Kuala Lumpur (2 shows at 3 pm & 8 pm) on the 24th of June 2023.
