Internationally acclaimed director David McVicar presents his new production of Verdi's tragic opera with Micaela Carosi in the demanding title role. The talented soprano first portrayed Aida in 2001 in celebration of the Verdi Centenary at the Teatro Verdi in Busseto, the Teatro Piccolo in Milan and Teatro Agentina in Rome. The story follows the eponymous Ethiopian princess, who is enslaved by the Egyptian princess, Amneris. The heroine's freedom lays in the hands of her beloved Radames, an army officer who hopes to become commander of the Egyptian forces. Amneris is also in love with Radames, who suspects his true feelings for Aida, and she plots her revenge. When the Ethiopians invade Egypt, led by Aida's father King Amonasro, Amneris encourages Radames to take charge, leaving Aida torn between her love for crusading Radames and her loyalty to her father. Verdi's music, conducted by Nicola Luisotti, is intensely haunting and powerfully embodies the dramatic ending of the story. Marcelo Alvarez plays the role of Radames with Marianne Cornetti as scheming Amneris.
