The Royal Opera House gears up to welcome Verdi’s classic opera from March 2011 to April 2011. The production, with David McVicar directing, originally appeared in front of visitors during the 2010 season and this welcome return will allow further London theatre audiences the chance to relish in the wonderful designs and performances. “Aida”, first performed in Cairo in 1871, tells the story of doomed lovers – a prisoner and one of those that captured her – in an Egyptian setting where such a romance can never survive. But unlike the romance of the story the opera itself was always destined to stand the test of time, having opened to great fan-fare and acclaim in the 1870s and returning to the stage once again almost 140 years later.
Indeed across the last century and beyond, “Aida” has appeared all over the world, from its early appearance in the UK at the Royal Opera House back in 1876 to appearances in the United States in 1873, 1886 and 1949. So it is no wonder it is still has renowned as it returns to the stage in the 21st century, where it appears at the Royal Opera House during a season that also welcomes the likes of Fidelio and The Tsar’s Bride, among others.
With David McVicar directing, the production will feature Daniele Rustioni and Fabio Luisi as conductors, alongside a cast that includes Micaela Carosi and Latonia Moore in the role of Aida and Roberto Alagna, Carlo Ventre and Dongwon Shin as Radames.
Aida makes its way to the Royal Opera House from Friday 11th March 2011 to Friday 15th April 2011.
