Les Délices presents Dido's Lament

When: Sun., March 11, 4-5:30 p.m. 2018

The incredible Irish harpist Maria Christina Cleary and favorite soprano Clara Rottsolk will join Les Délices for performances of Dido’s Lament in Lakewood and Shaker Heights March 10 & 11, 2018. Culminating in Purcell’s famous lament “When I am laid in earth” from Dido and Aeneas, this varied program imagines Dido, queen of Carthage, famously deserted by Aeneas, from three emotional and musical perspectives. Harp solos and improvisations plus chamber music by Purcell complete the program. Pre-concert lecture at 3pm.
