Dido and Aeneas 1971Ledlanet Nights

Read more about the opera Dido and Aeneas

This double bill worked well as a pairing, with Dido followed by La serva padrona after the interval dinner.

Lorna Brindley spent several seasons at Glyndebourne, singing chorus and small roles, as well as covering larger ones. At Ledlanet she previously gave memorable performances in what may have been Scottish premieres of Alcina and La clemenza di Tito.

However, in the more familiar role of Dido, Brindley made less impact.

Sheila McGrow and Brian Kemp were among the familiar singers giving excellent support.

The Ledlanet summer season included a week-long residency by Scottish Opera for All - piano-accompanied stagings of La traviataMartha and Cinderella, as well as Ledlanet's own production of Telemann's Pimpinone coupled with Monteverdi's Ballo delle Ingrate. There was also an oratorio performance - Haydn's Creation. The Autumn schedule included another double bill - Pergolesi's Serva Padrona paired with Dido and Aeneas.
