Mark Morris’s adaptation of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, a baroque operatic masterwork written in 1689, takes a fresh and controversial approach to the oldest English opera still being regularly performed today. Morris himself stars in the dual roles of Dido and the Sorceress, members of the Mark Morris Dance Group perform the supporting roles, and Tafelmusik, the award-winning Toronto-based baroque orchestra, provides accompaniment to a superb cast of vocal soloists, including the great American mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane.
