Opera North: Aida

Torn between love and duty

Two countries are at war. Aida secretly loves an enemy general, Radamès, who returns her love. When Radamès is selected to lead a renewed assault against the enemy, Aida is forced to choose between betraying her country and betraying her heart.

Verdi reserved some of his finest arias for the doomed lovers such as ‘Celeste Aida’ and ‘O patria mia’. This new concert staging of Aida comprises an international cast and reunites the 2017 Turandot creative team with conductor Sir Richard Armstrong, director Annabel Arden and set and costume designer Joanna Parker.

“The drama is viscerally alive… a complete triumph.”
The Telegraph on Turandot (2017)

Running Time
Approximately 2 hours 50 minutes

Sung in Italian with English titles
