Venus & Adonis and Dido & Aeneas

Florentine Opera

February 2nd, 2018 | Uihlein Hall, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts

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

This sublimely beautiful pair of English one-act operas 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.
This production is a collaboration with Danceworks and Great Lakes Baroque.
