Dido, the Queen of Carthage, falls in love with Aeneas. The gods have other ideas: they doom the lovers. Dido, despairing, kills herself. Purcell’s classic chamber opera interpreted afresh through a youthful, queer, subversive lens.
The Other Theatre is a new and emerging theatre company founded and run by passionate young artists. We want to push boundaries and challenge our audience into having a uniquely theatrical experience. The Other Theatre has produced Shakespeare’s Richard II, Mike Bartlett’s Cock and is currently preparing its third production – the Australian premiere of Marius von Mayenburg’s The Dog, The Night and the Knife.
