‘Aida’ is the stuff of operatic legend. Gold-clad warriors and lithe dancers traverse the stage, and pyramids emblazoned with mysterious hieroglyphs loom from the shadows, while Verdi’s moving arias tell the epic story of two peoples at war.
This is grand opera, writ large, brought to the Sydney Opera House stage by a veritable master of spectacle. Graeme Murphy’s production fills the stage with soaring voices and glittering pageantry.
At its heart, Aida is a tale of star-crossed lovers. Radamès is the general of the Egyptian army, Aida is an Ethiopian princess, and the two are on opposite sides of a bitter war. Aida is captured in battle and given to the Egyptian princess Amneris as a slave. Radamès falls for Aida, Amneris falls for Radamès, and Aida is left to choose between her love for Radamès, and love for her country.
