$35, $24, $15
Directed by violinist Monica Huggett and featuring striking newcomer Golda Schultz, the showcase of this concert is “Dido and Aeneas,” Henry Purcell's 17th century opera. The joyful marriage of two monarchs meets tragedy when a sorceress intervenes. Will the Queen summon the strength to survive? Also on the program, Benjamin Britten's Gloriana celebrates two queens: its subject is Elizabeth I, and it was written for the coronation of Elizabeth II.
