Feature: Sasha Waltz & Guests

Wednesday 7 March 2007

Sasha Waltz Sasha Waltz & Guests Dido & Aeneas, Sadler’s Wells, 14 – 18 March

Sasha Waltz’s adaptation of Purcell’s classic opera Dido & Aeneas brings opera and dance together in a stunning work featuring over fifty dancers,
singers and musicians. Featuring a vast transparent water tank on stage, the show
begins with a splash as the dancers plunge into the tank to perform an exquisite
underwater dance. Purcell’s opera is unusual for including several dance movements.
Waltz expands upon this, casting both a singer and a dancer in each role, creating
unified duets of movement and voice.
