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.
