Aida Editor's Pick

Aida

This historic epic is a perennial favourite

Verdi’s monumental, transcendent music makes this historic epic a perennial favourite. The new production comes from the celebrated Italian director Davide Livermore. He is renowned for high-tech, projected sets so tangible, it’s hard to believe they are just light and shadow. Immersive, impressive, intimate — this is the future of spectacle on stage. Thrilling young conductor Andrea Battistoni returns to lead this production. Three magnificent casts perform Verdi’s difficult leads. You don’t want to miss the stunning soprano of Amber Wagner, paired with Elena Gabouri as Amneris and Riccardo Massi as Radamès. Later in the season, rising star Natalie Aroyan takes on her dream role, and Clémentine Margaine, Milijana Nikolic, Diego Torre and Yonghoon Lee join the all-star lineup.
