The University Of Northampton – Dido & Aeneas


Students across all three years of The University of Northampton’s Popular Music department perform their first opera, Purcell’s heartbreaking love story Dido & Aeneas, under the tutelage of their choir master and musical director, Jasmine Shadrack, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music.

What should have been a beautiful love story between a queen and her warrior lover becomes a tale of witchcraft, broken hearts and betrayal. Purcell’s timeless master work, the magnum opus that heralded the birth of English opera, is brought to the stage with stunning performances by the students.
