After its successful season of Madama Butterfly, Carmen and La Traviata last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the premiere of Opera, Aida. The brand-new production guarantees to delight you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes.
Verdi brings ancient Egypt to the stage at The Sands Centre in Carlisle with this evolving love story at the backdrop of war. The princess of Ethiopia (Aida) falls in love with the Egyptian General (Radames) and he is also besotted by her. Radames is chosen to lead the war with Ethiopia by the king and Aida is left to choose between her lover or her father and her country.
Aida is a gripping love story that will keep you on the edge of your seats until the very end.
