Dido and Aeneas
I am very excited that ACS are going to do the Purcell opera Dido and Aeneas. It contains one of the most beautiful arias in the English language - Dido's 'When I Am Laid In Earth'. Click here for the synopsis.
There have been many great interpretations of Dido over the years, here are tow very different ones singing 'When I Am Laid In Earth', first mezzo Dame Janet Baker and then soprano Dame Emma Kirkby.
I'm a soprano :)
