Dido & Aeneas

Armonico Consort are thrilled to announce their new recording of Dido and Aeneas

Armonico Consort and Baroque Players
Director | Christopher Monks

Dido | Rachael Lloyd
Aeneas | Robert Davies
Belinda | Elin Manahan Thomas

Whilst Henry Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas is the only complete opera written during his short life, it has become a work at the heart of British musical heritage. One of the world’s leading Baroque voices, Elin Manahan Thomas, performs in this stunning recording of the first masterpiece in English opera. The epic tragedy of a queen, a soldier and an illicit love is told through a spectacularly rich array of music.

There are only a limited number available through Armonico Consort in Spring 2015 before it is released on international sale in Summer 2015 (£15). All proceeds from the sale of this cd go towards supporting 15,000 children each year singing in an AC Academy project. Call 01926 800109 ext. 1 or email admin@armonico.org.uk to pre-order.
