I had a grand idea of writing a musical based on Purcell's opera "Dido & Aeneas", but I've recently cancelled this project. Dido's Lament from this opera has always haunted me, and this is a musical-style song based on it. It the point in the story where Dido resigns herself to the fact that she has lost her true love, Aeneas, forever, and dies of a broken heart.

In Purcell's opera, Dido is a soprano, but "Forget My Fate", which only goes up to top 'D' may be sung by soprano or alto. It may be transposed.
