Aida

Date: 12 Mar 2021

Davide Livermore’s radiant production deploys towering digital screens to create ever-changing floor-to-ceiling set pieces. 

Opulent costumes and props reflect the splendour of Egypt at the height of its power. Together with dramatic video, the massed grandeur of the famous Triumphal March is a visual and musical feast.

Lorenzo Passerini and Tahu Matheson conduct two magnificent casts. Sensational American soprano Leah Crocetto performs as the enslaved princess, Aida, before Elena Guseva takes over. Elena Gabouri reprises her critically acclaimed turn as Aida’s rival, Amneris, sharing the role with the stunning Agnieszka Rehlis.

Italian tenor Stefano La Colla performs as Radamès, the man they both love, sharing the role with Najmiddin Mavlyanov, making his Opera Australia debut.
