Arena di Verona

Aida

Aida is indisputably one of the most mythical and important operas to be performed every year at the Arena di Verona. The series of 16 performances will begin on June 26, 2021. This production by Franco Zeffirelli will bring the wonderful and colorful ancient Egypt to the stage thanks to the costumes and garments created by Anna Anni and the stage design, which will be presided by a colossal, golden pyramid, especially designed for the magnificent coliseum of the Arena di Verona.  Buy the best tickets at the best price on our website to see one of the masterpieces of opera in a performance that you will not want to miss.

Aida is an opera in four acts composed by the genius of Giuseppe Verdi with a book in Italian by Antonio Ghislanzoni. Set in the ancient Egypt, the opera was commissioned to celebrate the opening of the Khedivial Opera House in El Cairo, where it premiered on December 1871 with maestro Giovanni Bottesini as the conductor. It is among the most performed operas in history. For instance, it has been performed over a thousand times in the Metropolitan Opera of New York since 1886.

The story revolves around the Ethiopian princess Aida, who is captured and sent to Egypt as a slave. At this moment, Radames enters the scene. He is a commander of the Pharaoh who falls in love with Aida and will have to struggle between his love for her and his loyalty to the Pharaoh. The plot thickens with a love triangle when Amneris, daughter of the Pharaoh, demands the love of Radames.
