Verdi's Magnificent Aida: Kennedy Center Opera House
With sets and costumes inspired by acclaimed graffiti artist RETNA, this Kennedy Center Opera House production of Giuseppe Verdi's Aida -- the grandest of grand operas --strikes a brilliant balance between spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. Composed at the request of the King of Egypt for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1871, the opera tells the tragic tale of a love triangle in which an enslaved Ethiopian princess' love for the military leader Radames is doomed by his selection as the future groom of the Pharaoh's daughter. Aida is directed by Francesca Zambello, while Evan Rogister conducts the Washington National Opera. Two commanding sopranos -- Tamara Wilson and Amber Wagner -- share the title role in these performances, sung in Italian with projected titles in English.
