The tragic tale of a beautiful Egyptian slave girl and her love for the Egyptian hero, Radames - presented by Opera & Ballet International. Read More >

Opera & Ballet International presents an Ellen Kent Production… Verdi – Aida, the grandest of all Operas. Directed by Ellen Kent, and starring international soloists, this brand new production brings the hot, dusty plains and dramatic grandeur of ancient Egypt to the stage in Verdi’s classic love story brimming with war, jealousy and revenge.

With opulent sets and costumes, this traditional production is as stunning visually as it is musically, featuring some of the greatest pieces of music Verdi ever wrote, with the well known arias ‘Celest Aida’, ‘Ritorna Vincitor’ and the great chorus piece the ‘Triumphal March’.

Aida tells the tragic tale of a beautiful Egyptian slave girl and her love for the Egyptian hero, Radames.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
