Verismo Opera Verismo Opera presents Aida by Giuseppe Verdi

Aida, set in ancient Egypt, is a high-stakes love triangle between two rival princesses and a conflicted military commander.  One of the most famous and beloved operas, it contains iconic arias such as “Celeste Aida,” “Ritorna vincitor,” “O patria mia,” and the famous triumphal march.  It is a deeply moving story of passionate love, thundering vengeance and heart-breaking sacrifice.  Normally Aida is presented on a huge stage and filled with grand spectacle.  Verismo Opera’s production will be in a smaller setting that offers the opportunity to really explore the more intimate aspects of the love story and will place more emphasis on the glorious music.

Aida has come to be the most popular of his operas and one of the most loved of all Italian dramas.  Set in Ancient Egypt, it is a timeless story of love and betrayal again the backdrop of war.  The story is a roller coaster of emotions told through Verdi’s powerful music.
