Description: Dido’s Terrible, Awful, Really Bad, Not Very Good Day, as Aeneas scarpers to Italy, Iarbas attacks and starts burning Carthage to the ground and she is betrayed by her sister and a friend, gets wrapped up in a bit under 54 minutes in this one-act Singspiel of 1779 due to Holzbauer’s high-pressure compacting and amalgamating of the events in a much longer Metatasio libretto translated into German. Kind of like a highlights disc with all action all the time. German texts. Sandrine Piau, Carmen Fuggiss (sopranos), Markus Schäfer (tenor), Thomas Mohr (baritone), Members of the Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Stuttgart Baroque Orchestra;  Frieder Bernius.
