Phillip Rhodes “ideal ” as Purcell’s Aeneas

21 February 2013

Baritone Phillip Rhodes portrays a “firm” Aeneas (The York Press) and “brings a powerful presence… coming into his own with “Yours be the blame, ye gods!”” (bachtrack.com).  Writing in Opera Britannia Mogridge also commented “his dark coloured voice possesses an attractive rugged quality - an ideal match for Helen Stephen’s Dido.  A pity that Purcell does not give Aeneas more to do”.

Performances of Opera North’s new production of Dido and Aeneas run until 22nd March and the production goes on tour from 26th February.  For more information please click here.
