    Jeff Carpenter's Dido & Aeneas
    By Henry Purcell, Nahum Tate

    23:00, Wed 16th February 2011 - Sat 19th February 2011 at ADC Theatre
    Lent Week 4

    QUEEN TO PAWN

    Love does crazy things to everyone. But when the stakes are higher, so are the losses. The Alcock PLayers proudly present the premier of Jeff Carpenter's Dido and Aeneas, a brand new orchestration of Henry Purcell's great classic.

    MAGIC AND HEARTBREAK

    Dido is the queen of a great empire, tough, powerful, independent - but love is completely shut out of her life until the handsome hero Aeneas sails into town. Now there are dark powers at work, witches with agendas of their own. And Aeneas may not be quite so heroic as he looks...

    A NEW VISION

    This new interpretation updates the orchestration to a more modern sound inspired by twentieth and twenty-first century musical theatre - think Sweeney Todd and Wicked!
