Performance: Fate and the Heroine: Dido, Queen of Carthage
Nancy Evans Dance Theatre
Saturday, March 16, 2019
Nancy Evans Dance Theatre explores through dance, music, art and text the tragic love story between Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Prince Aeneas of Troy from Virgil’s epic poem the Aeneid. Branching off from Virgil’s tale, this powerful performance tells the tale of Dido from her perspective. Following the performance, audience members enjoy a question-and-answer period with the choreographer and dancers.
Presented in conjunction with Once Upon a Tapestry: Woven Tales of Helen and Dido, on view December 7, 2018–May 27, 2019.
