Dido and Aeneas

17 - 21 May

Love’s a bitch…


UnstuckOpera presents a re-composition of Henry Purcell’s classic opera Dido and Aeneas.


Never been to the opera? This is the perfect playful introduction. Audiences explore every inch of the Basement Theatre in this promenade production and watch as Dido falls for Aeneas, witches wreak havoc and we ask; is love really a choice?


Dido and Aeneas is produced by UnstuckOpera, an ensemble of some of Auckland’s most exciting young operatic talent, led by director Frances Moore and award-winning composer Alex Taylor.


UnstuckOpera’s Dido and Aeneas is intimate, unashamedly subversive, sometimes absurd and completely and utterly heart-breaking.
