Dunedin Music Director David Burchell, director Dr Jenny Burchell and soprano Lois Johnston discuss their new initiative The Little Box of Operas. They plan to produce opera in the southern city using local professional performers. Their first production takes to the boards in just over a fortnight: Purcell's Dido and Aeneas is to be performed using authentic styles, with the musical accompaniment played on period instruments.
