Remember Me, but Ah!
Forget My Fate
Since its first performance in the 1680s (itself a mystery and a source of contention), Purcell's opera Dido and Aeneas has enjoyed waves of popularity. It is now prone to stagings ranging from those with Ur-baroque hand gestures to up-to-the-minute productions complete with hallucinogenic drugs and mobile phones. In this documentary, Gwen Hughes explores the opera's 300-year history, with contributions from historians, producers and performers.

By Christopher Marlowe.
A version of Marlowe's play by Sue Wilson. The year is 1537 and an inquiry is in progress into the events which led up to the horrifying death of Dr Faustus and the rumours of his pact with the Devil. Anthea Gomez's score creates a different vision of the hell which Mephostophiles can conjure.
