Beschreibung:

Performed by Members of the Purcell Operatic Society, Hampstead Conservatoire, on May 17th, 18th & 19th, 1900, 6 woodcut plates and decorations by Edward Gordon Craig light soiling to lower outer corners, with loosely inserted synopsis on pale grey paper, unbound in original brown printed wrapper, a little soiled and stained, frayed at edges, [F & R J4(a)], 8vo, Hackbridge, At the Sign of the Rose, 1900. *** Despite being performed by amateurs and for only three nights Dido & Aeneas was well-attended and received good reviews. Craig designed a memorable production, using gauzes and lighting to create a simple but effective performance, a "harmony of colour and form" as described in one of the reviews. This was the start of his experimental ideas for a new theatre.
