Berlioz & The Trojans

Sat 27 Feb 2016 @ 9:00 - 16:00

£50.00

We will explore Berlioz’s greatest work, the epic grand opera Les Troyens (the Trojans) which was based on Virgil’s Aeneid, a work which stirred the composer’s soul deeply. The opera portrays the capture of Troy by the Greeks and the subsequent arrival of the Trojan survivors in Carthage. The ensuing tragic romance between Dido, the Queen of Carthage, and the Trojan prince, Aeneas, is one of the most searing of all love stories.
