CBU Opera Theater presents a double bill: The night begins with Henry Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas with libretto by Nahum Tate which takes us through a love story where myth and history collide resulting in a dramatic end. This opera includes the famous aria, “When I am Laid in Earth”.

Followed by the light-hearted and hilarious satire Trial by Jury, an operetta in one act with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S Gilbert. This rollicking show will leave you humming the ever so catchy tunes of Gilbert and Sullivan and wanting more!


Every person, regardless of age, needs a ticket to attend a performance at the Lewis Family Playhouse. Children must be able to sit independently in their own seat for the duration of the show. Babes in arms are not permitted.
