Love this opera. I've played Second Witch in two productions - one was at the ADC a couple of years back :) All that cackling is such fun!

Belinda isn't a sister, but a handmaid or lady-in-waiting, as is "Second Woman", who despite having no name still has a LOT of singing to do!

Do enjoy it, it's absolutely wonderful and at just under an hour the perfect length, too.

So did your Dido just drop dead of a broken heart, or did she kill herself in some interesting way?

Most productions I know, she stabs herself.

I'm planning on a broken heart. That or expiring through lack of breath due to long sustained gorgeous dying passages.

Yes, that would work! I'm convinced Violetta and Mimi die from singing stupidly long and high arias ...

Oh, that's interesting! I've only seen her played as a handmaid/confidante, but either could work!
