SYNOPSIS: In order to cure her unhappiness, Dido, queen of Carthage, marries the Trojan prince, Aeneas, who is madly in love with her. While Dido and Aeneas are out hunting, an evil Sorceress and her assistants plot the destruction of Dido and Carthage. Soon, an evil witch disguised as the God Mercury stops Aeneas. She tells him that he must abandon Carthage and found a new Troy on Latin soil. While Aeneas hates the thought of leaving Dido, he cannot refuse a god's command.

The Fusion of Dance and Opera. This production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. This is doubtless because it offers a total symbiosis of music, text and movement -- described by the critic of the daily Telegraph of London as being "as close to the perfect dance opera as I have ever seen'.
