"Best of La Scala" Summer Opera Series: Aida
One of Giuseppe Verdi's blockbuster operas, Aida is set in ancient Egypt during the reign of the Pharaohs and conforms to the notion that in the game of love and war, all is fair. Perhaps.
Political intrigue, love, betrayal, passion, and vengeance conspire in a tragic love triangle that pits three people conflicted by their love for country, family, and each other. One of opera's most revered classics, Aida delivers an intense, compelling drama highlighted by spectacular theatrical pageantry.
This production of Aida was designed and directed by Franco Zeffirelli, featuring costumes by Maurizio Mellenotti, and starring Roberto Alagna as Radames, Ildiko Komlosi as Amneris, and Violeta Urmana in the title role. The production was conducted by Riccardo Chailly and the 310-person stage extravaganza was rewarded with a 13-minute ovation at the conclusion of the opera.
