With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

Since Queen Dido of Carthage first appeared in Virgil’s epic poem, Aeneid, more than 2000 years ago, she has been a touchstone for artists to express society’s changing attitudes towards women, love and politics. Dido has been immortalized in poetry, paintings, drama, and two operas by the great artists of each age.
