Why See Pittsburgh Opera - Aida?

Classical & Opera

Don't Miss Verdi's Tragic Masterpiece

The eminent Pittsburgh Opera continues its latest season with a luminous production of Verdi's high stakes melodrama Aida, featuring the return of up and coming prima donna Alexandra Loutsion in the title role. Director Crystal Manich's sweeping set and lavish design partners perfectly with Verdi's passionate sonic moments, which range from the exquisitely intimate to the dramatically epic. Set in Ancient Egypt, the story centers around the conflict between forbidden love and hatred for one's enemies. 

What Is Aida About?

Aida, a seemingly lowly Ethiopian slave girl is in love with her Egyptian captor Radames, a distinguished warrior on the battlefield. Unbeknownst to everyone however, she is in fact the captured princess from Ethiopia, whose furious father is on his way to rescue her, laying waste to Egypt in his path. Adding to the sense of danger is Amneris, the Egyptian princess, whose intense love for Radames cannot shake the feeling that the mysterious Aida just may be her rival in love.
