The splendour of Egypt is set against the grandeur of the Colosseum of Rome in this spectacular new production of Verdi’s Aida from Ellen Kent & Amphitheatre Productions.

The tragic love story of Aida is brought to life in a production set against one of the greatest pieces of music Verdi ever wrote with the well known arias Celeste Aida, Ritorna Vincitor and the great chorus piece the Triumphal March. This new version of Aida symbolises the powerful religious hold of the priests of Egypt and includes dance sequences based on the ancient temple dancers.

Aida is a story of war, jealousy and revenge, centred around the doomed love of the beautiful Ethiopian slave girl, Aida, and the Egyptian hero, Radames. Verdi’s Aida is a unique mixture of splendid chorus scenes and intimate, lyrical moments which show the Chisinau National Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus at their best.

Verdi’s Aida is performed in Italian with English surtitles.
