Synopsis

Princess Aida has been kidnapped: a valuable prize in a war between Egypt and Ethiopia. Meanwhile, the ambitious soldier Radames wrestles with his feelings for her.


As they draw closer together, each must make an agonizing choice between their loyalty to home, and their love for each other.


In  this  new  production,  director  Robert  Carsen  situates  Verdi’s  large-scale  political  drama  within  a contemporary  world,  framing  its  power  struggles  and  toxic  jealousies  in  the  apparatus  of  a  modern, totalitarian  state.


Royal  Opera  Music  Director Antonio  Pappano conducts Verdi’s  glorious, monumental score.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles
