Dido and Aeneas. If you're an opera enthusiast you're likely nodding and saying, "Yes, I'm in. Where? When?" (See below.) For the unfamiliar, the opera is the 17th-century work of English composer Henry Purcell. It's based on the story of Queen Dido of Carthage and her love for Trojan soldier Aeneas, as told in Book IV of Virgil's epic poem The Aeneid. On June 3, it's being performed by a communal chorus group, the San Francisco City Chorus, at the Old First Presbyterian Church. Dido and Aeneas is considered a master work of Baroque opera, an emotional tale of love and abandonment. Start your summer on a dramatic note with this classic.
