Be there for the can’t-miss event of Boston’s concert season as the Boston Early Music Festival Chamber Opera Series presents its third annual production, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
A landmark in operatic history, Purcell’s music vividly recounts the joyous love of Dido, proud Queen of Carthage, and the Trojan hero Aeneas—and their ill-fated, tragic separation, leading inexorably to Dido’s famous dying lament. The exquisite drama comes alive with superlative singing, lavish costumes, Baroque dance, and outstanding performances from the three-time Grammy-nominated BEMF Chamber Ensemble.

Pre-concert talks: Join us one hour before each performance for an engaging talk featuring Ellen T. Harris, Class of 1949 Professor of Music at MIT, and members of the BEMF Directorial Team.
