Dido und Eneas 2005

Chor.Sasha Waltz
StaatsOper Berlin,Germany.

Renowned for her boundless visual imagination, Berlin choreographer Sasha Waltz has come together with celebrated baroque orchestra Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin to present her first opera: a majestic reimagining of one of the world’s great romantic tragedies, Dido & Aeneas.
Henry Purcell’s 17th century masterwork is the myth of a queen, a soldier and the illicit love that tore them apart. Waltz’s version transports the audience into a wondrous underwater realm, where submerged dancers glide gracefully around a glass aquarium that fills the stage. From these watery depths, Waltz breathes new life into an enduring love story, carrying it to spectacular heights.
