Marin Baroque Presents DIDO & AENEAS
English opera in courtyard theater
San Anselmo
Event Description

 Marin Baroque Chamber Choir and period instrument Orchestra, Music Director Daniel Canosa, and Stage Director Marla Volovna take us on the enchanting musical journey of Henry Purcell’s English opera Dido & Aeneas. We are joined by the San Francisco Renaissance Dancers, directed by Jennifer Meller. Our orchestra includes Sara Usher on violin, Meg Eldridge on viola, Farley Pearce on cello, and Katherine Heater on harpsichord.  Dido will be sung by Christa Pfeiffer, Aeneas by Mark Bonney, and Belinda by Rosemary Beecher Bryant.

Thrill to the dramatic story of lovers found and lost. The Trojan prince, Aeneas, is shipwrecked in Carthage where he and Queen Dido fall madly in love but, alas, evil witches plot against them.

The performances will take place at 8 PM on Friday June 26th and Saturday June 27th at First Presbyterian Church San Anselmo, 72 Kensington Rd, 94960. The setting is our outdoor courtyard theater, the perfect place for an intimate, magical theater experience! (Reminder: San Anselmo evenings can be cool so please dress accordingly.)
