A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Dido and Aeneas, by Henry Purcell

Berlin State Opera / Berlin / Music

Sasha Waltz’s choreography is raw and conceptual, her dancers often unclothed, their bodies braving extreme situations that pose existential questions. So it should be interesting to see Waltz’s staging of a Baroque opera, shapely and contained, and not just any Baroque opera, but Purcell’s rose-cut diamond of 1689, the tragic tale of Dido and Aeneas. Waltz will soon begin co-directing, along with Johannes Ohman, the Staatsballett Berlin. —L.J.
