Aida by Giuseppe Verdi

Zandra Rhodes’ vivid designer’s eye enhances Verdi’s vision of ancient Egypt in this stunning production. Acclaimed in London, San Francisco and Houston, the brilliant sets and costumes are seen in San Diego for the first time, creating a riot of color and pageantry. The tragic love triangle of a Pharaoh’s daughter competing with her own Ethiopian slave for the love of an Egyptian general is one of the most-beloved operas.

Filled with great arias and choruses, including the famous Triumphal March, Aida demands extraordinary singers in every role. Rising American star Latonia Moore conquered Covent Garden as Aida: “I can honestly say that I have not heard an Aida like her at Covent Garden…or, for that matter, anywhere else…Moore is a world-class artist”. (Opera Magazine, UK). Italian tenor, Walter Fraccaro, as Radames, “…whose singing is burnished and impassioned” (The New York Times), Jill Grove as Amneris “…a low mezzo bordering on contralto (with) a rich and full bottom voice” (La Scena Musicale), and Mark Doss with his “…strong and authoritative bass-baritone voice” (San Francisco Sentinel) as Amonasro, lead the cast. Italian conductor Daniele Callegari makes his San Diego Opera debut with Andrew Sinclair directing.

Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage.
