Torn between love and duty
Egypt is at war with Ethiopia. Aida, daughter of the Ethiopian king, has been captured by the Egyptians. Secretly, she loves an Egyptian general, Radamès, who returns her love. When Radamès is selected to lead a renewed assault against the enemy, Aida is forced to choose between betraying her country and betraying her heart.
Verdi reserved some of his finest arias for the doomed lovers such as ‘Celeste Aida’ and her ‘O patria mia’. Opera North’s new concert staging of Aida comprises an international cast and stellar creative team, including conductor Sir Richard Armstrong, director Annabel Arden and set and costume designer Joanna Parker.
