DidoA new production of Purcell's masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas, gives a contemporary staging of the tragic love story for teenagers and adults, in a first ever collaboration between English National Opera and the Unicorn. This production, faithful to the Baroque score, refocuses the piece so that it is seen through Belinda's eyes, the only child of Dido. A teenager in a big city, Belinda sees her mother - heroine, feminist icon, modern parent - slowly start to fall apart, with tragic consequences. Performed by a company of twenty-two, the three principal singers are Rachael Lloyd as Dido, Njabulo Madlala as Aeneas and Eyra Norman as Belinda.
