The Russian State Opera presents premiere of Aida – timeless and emotional opera with breath-taking melodies.
Music by Giuseppe Verdi sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians
After its successful season of Madama Butterfly, Carmen and La Traviata last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the premiere of Opera, Aida. The brand-new production guarantees to delight you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes.
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.
Aria 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. 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.
