Aida

Opera by Giuseppe Verdi

Production: Nicolas Joël
Stage design and costumes: Carlo Tommasi
Choreography: Jan Stripling

Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida was commissioned not for the opening of the Suez Canal, as is frequently supposed, but for the opera house in Cairo, where the piece was premièred on 24 December 1871. Prior to that, the composer had undertaken an extensive study of Egyptian culture; Verdi was extremely concerned with authenticity in this opera.
The famous love story with a tragic ending tells the tale of the Egyptian slave Aida and the army captain Radames. It has been performed more than a thousand time at the House on the Ring and is being revived in a production that dates back to 1984. (Source Wiener Staatsoper)
