The grandest of grand operas, Aida returns to Manitoba Opera for the first time in over a decade! Impassioned arias, surging choruses, and exhilarating orchestral music shows us Verdi at the peak of his powers – masterfully balancing pomp and pageantry with a deeply moving personal tragedy. Amneris, daughter of the King of Egypt, loves Radames, the captain of the Egyptian guard. But he loves Amneris' Ethiopian slave, Aida, who loves him back. What he doesn't know is that Aida's father is Amonasro, the King of Ethiopia and his country's greatest enemy. Aida boasts enormous, sweeping arias that blend together Verdi's human passion, Italian melodrama, and French grand opera spectacle, featuring the unforgettable Triumphal Scene. Saturday, April 13 Tuesday, April 16 Friday, April 19 Centennial Concert Hall, Winnipeg For more information or to find tickets, visit Manitoba Opera.
