Les Troyens – 'Nuit d'ivresse et d'extase infinie'

Extracts | Berlioz

Act 4 concludes with this duet between Aeneas (Bryan Hymel) and Dido (Yvonne Naef ). The words are based on Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice ('On such a night ...'). The two lovers charm each other and exchange mythological references where provocations, chastity and fury of love mingle.
