Russian State Opera returns with the premiere of opera Aida. This brand-new production guarantees to delight you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes. 

Verdi brings ancient Egypt on stage with an evolving love story at the backdrop of war. The princess of Ethiopia (Aida) falls in love with the Egyptian General (Radames) and he is also besotted by her. Radames is chosen to lead the war with Ethiopia by the king and Aida is left to choose between her lover or her father and her country. 

Aida is a gripping love story that will keep you on the edge of your seats until the very end. ‘Se quel Guerrier io fossi!’ sung by Radames in the first act is one of the most famous arias of the operatic world. 

A deeply moving opera overflowing with emotion and containing moments of despair and uncertainty, Aida is an unforgettable, inspiring experience.

Music by Giuseppe Verdi sung in Italian with English surtitles. Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live orchestra numbering over 30 musicians.

“A boon to the opera in regional theatres.”
