Illustrated synopsis & cast gallery.
Interview with Wayne McGregor.
Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London on 3rd &
8th April 2009.

‘Dido is perfectly integrated, and the expressively stylised movements that
McGregor has devised for the singers make a fascinating contrast to the gyrations
of the corps de ballet. …The casts were excellent. [Sarah Connolly] struck gold
with a heartbreaking account of "When I am laid". The sensitivity of her acting
and her intense musicality was striking throughout. Lucy Crowe made a delightful
Belinda, with Lucas Meachem a quarterback hunk of an Aeneas. The young ad
hoc chorus sang beautifully.’ The Telegraph
