Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly praised chorus and full orchestra

VERDI AIDA

With a new spectacular interpretation of the classic opera ‘Aida’



Starring Olga Perrier the international French Soprano as Aida and Liza Kadelnik the celebrated mezzo from the Romanian National Opera as Amneris*

Aida, the grandest of all Ellen Kent’s operas, returns in Autumn 2016 to the UK with a stunning new traditional production, boasting an impressive new set built by Set-Up Scenery in the UK, who also build sets for the Royal Opera Covent Garden.

In Aida, the splendour of Egypt is set against the grandeur of the Coliseum of Rome with Ellen Kent’s direction influenced by the ancient Greek dramas of Euripides and symbolising the powerful religious hold of the priests of Egypt. This tragic story of war, jealousy and revenge at whose heart is the doomed love of the beautiful Ethiopian slave girl, Aida, and the Egyptian hero, Radames, is brought to life in a production set against one of the greatest pieces of music Verdi ever wrote with the well known arias “Celeste Aida”, “Ritorna Vincitor” and the great chorus piece the ‘Triumphal March’
