Dido and Aeneas
William Hayman Cummings
Dover Publications, 1915 - Music - 89 pages
Sparkling miniature opera, filled with intense drama and elegant song, lasts no more than an hour, yet unfolds a virtuoso range of expressive music, from a high-spirited sailors' dance to Dido's touching lament "When I am laid in earth." First presented in 1689, it remains the oldest operatic work still popularly performed. Authoritative early edition.
