Purcell - Dido & Aeneas 

Our first Opera Academy of 2021 will be a revival of one of Ensemble OrQuesta's most beloved productions, Dido and Aeneas by Purcell.

The Academy will take place from the 6th to 14th March in Hastings, East Sussex with two final performances at Christ Church, St Leonards on Sea on the 13th and 14th February at 7:00pm.

Each Academy participant performs at least one performance of a role in the fully staged production of the opera, in original language, with the accompaniment of the Ensemble OrQuesta professional baroque ensemble and harpsichord. 

The Academy course is led by Ensemble OrQuesta Artistic Director Marcio da Silva and harpsichordist Kieran Staub. The chorus will be sung by the Hastings Philharmonic Chamber Choir. 

Professional stage photos are taken at the dress rehearsals.

Tuition fee: £500 (does not include accommodation)
