Aida is the stuff of operatic legend. Gold-clad warriors and lithe dancers traverse the stage. Pyramids loom from the shadows. And Verdi’s moving songs tell of two peoples at war.
Graeme Murphy’s production of Verdi’s Aida is back to fill the stage of the Sydney Opera House with soaring voices and glittering pageantry. This is grand opera, writ large, brought to the stage by a master of spectacle.
Arvo Volmer, conducts a cast of blazing voices, led by the powerful soprano of Latonia Moore in the title role.
Radamès is an Egyptian warrior, Aida is an Ethiopian princess, and the two are on opposite sides of a bitter war. When they fall for each other Aida must choose between her love for Radamès, and love for her country.
