This week’s program featured two ancient love stories. In one of the stories, a king appears uninterested in marriage until he meets a beggar on the street. In the other, a great musician attempts to recover his love from death itself; this is the first in a series of Greek myths that will be told over the next several weeks. Enjoy!

This week’s story was a tragic tale out of ancient Rome, Dido and Aeneas, derived from Virgil’s Aeneid. When the Trojan Aeneas flees the wreck of Troy, a stop in Carthage and a visit with the queen Dido interrupts and nearly derails his destiny. It is a tale for older kids, and certainly for adults wanting to brush up on their classics.
