During April 17-20, 2008, Salisbury University made history with it's first staged production of an opera. The production was Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, which tells of the Trojan refugee Aeneas who is shipwrecked in Carthage and falls in love with Dido, its legendary Queen. When Aeneas must leave for Rome, Dido can not live without him. Students from the newly created Opera Workshop course made up the cast which was led by Dr. T Paul Pfeiffer, Stage Director, Prof. John Welsey Wright, Musical Director, and Mr. Rob Baker, Orchestra Conductor.
