FEATURING A MAGNIFICENT BLACK STALLION!
With a new spectacular interpretation of the classic opera ‘Aida’

Aida, the grandest of all Ellen Kent’s operas, returns in Autumn 2016 to the UK with a stunning new traditional production, boasting an impressive new set built by Set-Up Scenery in the UK, who also build sets for the Royal Opera Covent Garden.
In Aida, the splendour of Egypt is set against the grandeur of the Coliseum of Rome with Ellen Kent’s direction influenced by the ancient Greek dramas of Euripides and symbolising the powerful religious hold of the priests of Egypt. This is a tragic story of war, jealousy and revenge at whose heart is the doomed love of the beautiful Ethiopian slave girl, Aida, and the Egyptian hero, Radames. Featuring a magnificent black stallion, 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 classic “Triumphal March” including a temple dance, cascades of glittering gold and amazing fire performers
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
