Russian State Opera presents Verdi’s Aida – a timeless and emotional opera with breathtaking melodies – featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live orchestra of over 30 musicians.
Following show-stopping performances of Madama Butterfly, Carmen and La traviata, Russian State Opera returns to Cadogan Hall with a brand new production featuring stunning sets and costumes.
Verdi brings ancient Egypt on stage with an evolving love story set against the backdrop of war. The Princess of Ethiopia (Aida) falls in love with the Egyptian General (Radames) who is in turn 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 seat until the very end.
Arias such as ‘Se quel Guerrier io fossi!’ sung by Radames in Act I is one of the most famous arias in the operatic world, while one of the most powerful melodies comes in the second part of the opera in the form of the Triumphal March, highlighting 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.
