DIDO & ÆNEAS and other fateful encounters
Purcell’s music is deceptively beautiful and captivating. With his naturally flowing, almost nonchalant, melodies, Purcell catches the very essence of the human drama. His theatrical genius breathes life into a whole gamut of emotions, situations and conflicts.

In the opera Dido & Æneas both heroes/lovers take risks. Neither dares to go for their happiness. The result of their choice makes this opera so tragic, and so deeply human.

Operagroep The Fat Lady offers her own, intimate version of Purcell’s timeless opera.
We sing. You sigh…
