A story of a love so strong it defies enemy lines. A story of a kingdom in triumph and a nation in chains. A story of betrayal.

Verdi’s majestic music makes this epic and enduring favourite. Davide Livermore’s radiant production is a thrilling theatrical experience. Ten towering digital screens create ever-changing floor-to-ceiling set pieces. Immersive digital video design ranges from rich symbolism to vivid landscapes.

Opulent costumes and props reflect the splendour of Egypt at the height of its power. Together with dramatic video, the massed grandeur of the famous Triumphal March is a visual and musical feast.

Sensational Australian soprano Natalie Aroyan performs as the enslaved princess, Aida, while Elena Gabouri reprises her critically acclaimed turn as Aida’s rival, Amneris. Diego Torre is a powerful Radamès, the man they both love.

Presented by Opera Australia in association with Opera Queensland
