Southeastern music and theatre students performed, Dido and Aeneas, an opera written by English Baroque composer, Henry Purcell, on Oct. 27 and Oct. 29.

Dido and Aeneas tells the story of the Queen of Carthage, Dido, and the Trojan Prince, Aeneas. When Aeneas and his crew becomes shipwrecked in Carthage, the opera follows the two lovers to a tragic end.

Dell McLain, Professor and KSSU Advisor, thinks it is one of the best opera pieces Southeastern has to offer. The “great crop of students” had voices that were, “soaring and magnificent,” Mclain complimeted.

The opera lasted approximately 45 minutes and was appropriate for all ages.

Mario Giamporcaro, senior psychology major, expressed his amazement at the hidden talents of the student performers.

“I am always flabbergasted about how outstanding our students are,” Giamporcaro continued, “They all did an amazing job and the comradeship I see in these students is priceless.”
