Join us for the student production of Dido, Queen of Carthage by Christopher Marlowe.

Drawing upon Virgil’s Aeneid, Christopher Marlowe’s Dido, Queen of Carthage (c. 1593) dramatizes the classic and tragic love story of Dido and Aeneas. This short and lively early modern play blends comedy and tragedy and includes, alongside other human characters, many gods and goddesses—Jupiter, Ganymede, Juno, Venus, Mercury, and Cupid—as well as music, magic, trickery, and glorious poetry.
