Director Alek Shrader interweaves excerpts from Christopher Marlowe's play based on the same story, infusing a sense of agency and dignity back to the character of the wounded queen, and the terrible decision she faces when abandoned by the love of her life. With superstar Daniela Mack as Dido, you won't want to miss her sing the heartrending final aria "When I Am Laid in Earth" (while…in…a…Catacomb!) What's left, when all hope of love is lost?
