The Teatro dell'Opera di Roma presents a new production for Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece, which returns to the prestigious Roman stage with the conduction of Michele Mariotti and the direction of the eclectic Davide Livermore.
The opera in four acts, with a libretto by Antonio Ghislanzoni, based on an original subject by the French archaeologist Auguste Mariette, is one of the most loved and most awaited titles at the Costanzi.
Born on the occasion of the celebrations for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1870, Aida was performed for the first time at the Cairo Opera House on 24 December 1871.
The majestic and dramatic music of the composer from Busseto accompanies the love story of the Ethiopian princess, captured and taken into slavery in Egypt, and the Egyptian commander Radamès. The man is torn between the love for the woman and loyalty to the Pharaoh, complicated by unrequited love that Amneris, daughter of the Pharaoh, feels for Radamès. The story ends with the tragic death of the two unhappy lovers, walled up in a tomb.
On stage, a cast of prestigious performers: Krassimira Stoyanova (Aida), Fabio Sartori (Radamès), Ekaterina Semenchuk (Amneris), who alternate in their respective roles with Vittoria Yeo, Luciano Ganci and Irene Savignano, with costumes by Gianluca Falaschi , the lights by Antonio Castro, the videos by D-Wok and the evocative scenes by Giò Forma.
