From the Studio: Gonzaga University Presents Purcell's "Dido and Aeneas"

Jan 27, 2016

Tim Westerhaus, Amanda Rood, and Marie Daniels

In the first interview of our Wednesday theater triple-header, Verne talked with Gonzaga Director of Choirs and Vocal Studies Dr. Tim Westerhaus as well as two of his students, Marie Daniels and Amanda Rood.  They were here to preview their upcoming performances of Henry Purcell's baroque opera Dido and Aeneas. This is Purcell's first composed opera and one of the earliest known English operas.

This is a Gonzaga University co-production between the music and theatre and dance departments as well as the Incendo Baroque Ensemble.  Concerts take place this weekend: Friday, January 29th at 8:00pm and Saturday, January 30th at 2:00pm and 8:00pm.
