Académie baroque européenne d’Ambronay
Dido & Aeneas
Académie baroque européenne d’Ambronay, led by Paul Agnew, presents the opera Dido & Aeneas by H. Purcell. The love story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Trojan hero Aeneas is considered one of Purcells masterpieces, from the magnificent overture to Didos poignant death scene with the aria When I am laid in earth. The young musicians of the Académie are among the very cream of new talent in Europe, immersing themselves this repertoire both musically and in terms of rhetoric and expressiveness.
