Let your passions burn as Opera d’arte presents the tragic, but heroic love story between the Queen of Carthage and the hero of Troy. Henry Purcell’s only true opera, Baroque masterpiece Dido and Aeneas, is presented in a double bill with Giacomo Puccini’s raucous comedy, Gianni Schicchi, where we see a family passionately struggling to gain the inheritance of a dead relative, only to be outwitted by Gianni, who has his own passionate reasons to turn the tables! There is truly something for every opera lover in this double bill.
