Miami Music Festival: Dido & Aeneas and The Medium


Enjoy a double bill evening where two one-act classic operas are paired perfectly for one amazing night! Dido and Aeneas, by English baroque composer Henry Purcell, is based on the legendary love story between the Queen of Carthage, Dido, and the Trojan prince, Aeneas. Enter the spiritual realm with The Medium, a modern work by Gian Carol Menotti that tells the story of Baba, who hosts seances that trick bereaved parents into spending their money.
