All is right with the world when Dido, the Queen of Carthage, finally plans to marry her true love, the Trojan hero Aeneas. However, when a sorceress plots Carthage’s demise, it is Dido and Aeneas who find themselves at the center of her master plan. Will their love—and they themselves—survive? This heart-rending romance carries the great tradition of tragic opera into the present day, exploring the eternal struggle between betrayal, power, duty, and love.
