Presented by Florentine Opera Company

An original Florentine production that brings Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Virgil’s Aeneid to life.

This sublimely beautiful pair of English one-act operas Blow’s Venus & Adonis and Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas) blends perfectly into one evening of great opera. General Director William Florescu stages an evening to behold with a cast led by acclaimed mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy in the role of Dido, with soprano Alisa Jordheim as Venus/Belinda, and mezzo-soprano Colleen Brooks as the sorceress. Dancer/choreographer Dani Kuepper brings fresh movement to this early operatic masterpiece. World renowned harpsichordist and conductor Jory Vinikour leads an authentic Baroque ensemble.
