Overview

Working with phenomenal new digital staging technology, director-choreographer Davide Livermore creates an extravagant theatrical experience of Verdi’s monumental opera Aida. Opulent costumes and sensational visual effects reveal the glorious splendour of Egypt as it’s never been seen before.

Can love conquer all? A country ravaged by armed conflict is on the verge of collapse. Aida, a young prisoner of war in love with Radames, the General of the opposing army, finds herself torn between warring parties. We watch as they attempt to fulfil their desire in a world that refuses to allow it.

This Opera Queensland and Opera Australia co-production comprises a stellar cast, including acclaimed soprano Natalie Aroyan in the title role, powerful tenor Diego Torre as Radames and internationally renowned mezzo Elena Gabouri as Amneris. Adding vocal power and lustre to the mighty score are the Opera Australia and Opera Queensland Choruses.
