Dido's Bar

Set in a music club, teetering on the edge of belonging, Dido's Bar is a new immersive theatre and music production opening in London’s historic Royal Docks before touring Manchester, Leicester, Portsmouth, and Oxford.

Dido’s Bar is an epic retelling of Virgil’s Aeneid, created and performed by a multilingual international ensemble of actor-musicians, bringing to life the classic myth of migration, love, and assimilation, through the eyes of refugees today. Nightly, divine bar managers, Juno and Venus, welcome world-class artists onto their stage, and around their performances, the drama unfolds.

The work is inspired by director Josephine Burton’s encounter with Kurdish Iranian refugee and now Finnish resident, composer Marouf Majidi and is written by Hattie Naylor.
