The Flora Thornton Opera Program showcases its depth and versatility in this double billing of Purcell's baroque tragedy and Puccini's verismo comedy. The works will be performed back-to-back with a brief intermission. Both operas feature memorable arias such as "When I am laid in earth" and the iconic "O mio babbino caro."

Dido and Aeneas will be sung in English, and Gianni Schicchi will be sung in Italian.
