If Opera concert performance with guest conductor Christian Curnyn and the Bristol Ensemble
The course of true love runs far from smooth for Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Trojan hero Aeneas in Purcell’s famous opera. We are thrilled that our If Opera Company singers will be working with leading Baroque specialist and former Iford Arts regular Christian Curnyn. Intimate in scale, this timeless tale of love and anguish, sorcery, war and betrayal punches well above its weight and includes one of the most beautiful arias in all Baroque opera – When I am Laid in Earth.
