Berlioz's epic takes you to the pulsating heart of the great days of Troy. Read More >

Sweepingly powerful in scale and impact, Berlioz’s epic The Trojans takes you to the pulsating heart of the tensions within both the political and the personal. With this production ENO now achieves the composer’s dream of presenting the complete epic production together. Mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly makes her role début as the doomed queen Dido.
