 SMC Opera Theatre & SMC Chamber Choir

 Dido and Aeneas by Purcell
 SMC Opera Theatre, directed by Janelle DeStefano and the SMC Chamber Choir, directed by William Belan join forces to present a full production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, with scenes from Durón’s baroque zarzuela Salir el amor del mundo. In these beautiful stories of love and heartache—performed with baroque period instruments—Diana, the Huntress, tries to force Cupid from the world just as Dido tries to keep love from her heart.
