Step back in time to the magical kingdom of ancient Egypt from 1 to 6 June 2018 as the Singapore Lyric Opera proudly presents Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida – one of the most famous operas in the world – to Singapore.
Aida is a four-act opera composed by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Antonio Ghislanzoni. Famed for its brilliant theatricality and with a score written for an Egyptian audience, theatre-goers will be captivated by the soaring arias and rousing chorus numbers, the delightful dances, and the powerful performances. The compelling and raw emotions of Aida as she goes through her struggles and conflicts are one of the many highlights of the production as they reflect the composing genius of Verdi for portraying such heartfelt intimate emotions in a grand opera.
Commissioned by the Khedive of Egypt to celebrate the opening of the Khedivial Opera House in Cairo, Aida premiered on 24 December 1871. It has enthralled audiences around the globe for more than 140 years, making it one of the most famous operas of all time, and has been sung more than 1,100 times since 1886 at New York’s Metropolitan Opera alone.
Together with the alluring performances by the exceptional and outstanding international and local cast, it is an opera that is sure to delight the masses as well as the opera enthusiasts.
