The Song of Arms and a Man

This dramatic presentation of Virgil’s Aeneid made it to Gloucester, Bristol, Oxford, Godalming and Cambridge before coming to an abrupt halt, like everything else. The Song of Arms and a Man will return before long.

In the meantime, work is under way on something similar … from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

The two Latin readings from The Song below are both set in the underworld. In the first, Aeneas addresses the spirit of Dido; in the second, one of the Furies goes about her business. An English translation is read first (Aeneid 6.456-466;566-572).
