'Venus' and 'Dido' at Chilmark, Mon 27 Aug, 5pm. Adult Ticket

27.50

Opera at Chilmark produces one opera a year over the August Bank Holiday weekend in the barn at Cleeves Farm, Chilmark, Salisbury. The 2018 production is a double bill - John Blow's Venus and Adonis (in concert format) and Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (staged).

Venus and Adonis - A Masque for the Entertainment of the King was performed at court and later at Josias Priest's Boarding School at Chelsea in 1684 - a few year's later Dido was performed at the same school. Purcell and Blow were very well acquainted and Dido was clearly influenced in many ways by Venus.
