Rossini’s “La cambiale di matrimonio” and Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas” – UMKC Conservatory Join UMKC

Opera for a night of one acts. Rossini's farsa comica La cambiale di matrimonio is a classic telling of a young couple in love thwarted by a scornful father, who has promised his daughter to someone else. This was Rossini's first opera, composed in a few short days when he was 18 years old. Considered a monumental work in Baroque opera, Purcell's Dido and Aeneas recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her. Directed by Kirsten Cairns.
