Russian State Opera presents Verdi’s Aida, a timeless and emotional opera with breathtaking melodies.
After a successful last season featuring show-stopping performances of Madama Butterfly, Carmen and La traviata, Russian State Opera returns to Cadogan Hall with a brand-new production featuring breathtaking sets and costumes, and an impressive cast with live orchestra.
Verdi brings the ancient Egypt on stage with 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.
Arias such as ‘Se quel Guerrier io fossi!’ sung by Radames in the first act is one of the most famous arias of the operatic world, while the most powerful melody comes in the second part of the opera in the form of Triumphal March to highlight victory and triumph.
A deeply moving opera, overflowing with emotion and containing moments of despair and uncertainty, Aida is an unforgettable, inspiring experience.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
