Opera by Giuseppe Verdi Performed by Teatro Regio Torino

This thoroughly excellent production of Verdi’s grand masterpiece Aida is staged by the world-renowned stage director William Friedkin, famous for films such as The French Connection, and features outstanding interpreters of the soloist roles. Set in the Old Kingdom when Egypt was at war with Ethiopia, the story is about Aida (Kristin Lewis), an enslaved Ethiopian princess of great beauty who bravely faces the conflict between her love for the heroic Egyptian military commander Radamès (Gregory Kunde), and her loyalty to her father and their people. Similarly Radamès must choose between his ever-deepening love for Aida and his duty to the Pharaoh. The Orchestra and Chorus are conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, Music Director of Teatro Regio Torino and winner of the International Opera Awards Conductor of the Year 2016.
