Glorious pageantry, rousing choruses, and a basketful of great tunes elevate the moving tale of forbidden love between general and slave girl in ancient Egypt. The grandest of all grand operas, 'Aida' is also an intensely personal love story overflowing with passions as up to the minute as our own. Verdi's power to translate human emotion into magnificent music was at its zenith when he created this highly original and enjoyable masterwork, arguably the best evening's entertainment he ever devised. Performed in Italian with English captions.
