Information

Verdi's most spectacular opera, composed at the height of his fame by order of the khedive and Egyptian viceroy Ismael Pasha in 1870/1871, tells an impossible love story in times of war between the enslaved Ethiopian king's daughter Aida, the Egyptian general Radamès and the pharaoh's daughter Amneris. Love, jealousy, patriotism and a sense of duty characterise the conflicts of these three protagonists.
