Atilla

Date: 5 May 2021

The King of the Huns meets his match.

No one can stand before Attila and his hordes, until a warrior woman turns his head. As he opens his heart to his prisoner Odabella, the barbarian king reveals his weakness.

So the scene is set for one of the great revenge operas of the 19th century: an early Verdi in the vein of Aida.

Director Davide Livermore fuses video projections with colossal set pieces to create an awe-inspiring world for Attila.

This co-production with La Scala was a tremendous success at its Milan premiere, and had critics raving at its brief Sydney season in 2020. It’s a “blockbuster spectacle” (Financial Times), with four vivid characters, two horses and plenty of crowd scenes.

Alexander Vinogradov is Attila, opposite Natalie Aroyan singing her critically acclaimed Odabella.

Marco Vratogna performs as the Roman General, Ezio. Diego Torre is magnificent as Odabella’s lover Foresto.
