'Dido & Aeneas' is an opera by English Baroque composer Henry Purcell, from a libretto by Nahum Tate. It is based on a story from the fourth book of Virgil's 'Aeneid', of the legendary Queen of Carthage Dido and the Trojan refugee Aeneas. When Aeneas and his crew are shipwrecked in Carthage, he and the queen fall in love. However, Aeneas must soon leave to found Rome. Dido cannot live without him and awaits death.
