Giuseppe Verdi

Military commander Radamès inadvertently betrays his country because of his love for Aida. The lovers are joined in death. This Egyptian story inspired Verdi to write some of his most brilliant music, resulting in one of the finest operas of all time.

Verdi was a seasoned master by the time he came to write Aida, able to identify compelling stories and to play on the emotions of the audience. Aida is celebrated for its grand events and spectacular crowd scenes, but it also contains an intimate portrait of forbidden love. The acclaimed FNO production refers both to the time of the Pharaohs and to modern-day conflicts.
