La Follia begins its 2015-2016 season in spectacular fashion with a dramatized concert performance of Henry Purcell's operatic masterpiece Dido and Aeneas, with superstar Jennifer Lane in the role of Dido.

Dido and Aeneas is arguably the first English opera and certainly one of the greatest - as notably acknowledged by Benjamin Britten, who knew a thing or two about English opera. Running only a little over an hour, it nonetheless packs an emotional wallop with nobility, destiny, passion, trickery, betrayal and (of course) death set to the most beautiful music imaginable.
