The I. J. Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań Baroque Orchestra

Within the framework of the Opera Theatre Lab, the students of universities of art have been faced so far with the new works written specifically for this purpose. This time around, the creators and the performers will handle a Baroque opera – Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell – about love of the queen of Carthage and the Trojan leader, which is never to be fulfilled. Let us listen and look how they will inspire it with new life maintaining the respect for tradition!
