Buxton Opera House, Water St
Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 6XN United Kingdom
£25 – £78

‘Remember me, but ah! Forget my fate’ sings Dido at the end of Purcell’s opera. But life isn’t always quite so straightforward, and some memories have a destiny of their own.

Co-commissioned by Dunedin Consort, the Barbican Centre, Buxton International Festival, Edinburgh International…

St Vitus Church, Loeningen, Gelbrink 3
