Witness the power of love bring down even the greatest of kings in this fascinating new production of Verdi's Attila, hitting the Sydney Opera House Stage this coming spring!
Why Watch Attila
One of the greatest revenge operas of the 19th century, Verdi's Attila is arriving at the Sydney Opera House this spring. In this all-new production, director Davide Livermore fuses video projections with massive set pieces to create an epic scale world for Attila. This co-production with La Scala was a tremendous success at its Milan premiere. Taras Berezhansky is Attila, opposite Natalie Aroyan as Odabella. Simone Piazzola performs as the Roman General, Ezio. Diego Torre debuts another Verdi tenor role as Odabella’s lover Foresto.
As the curtains open, a mournful cello melody draws you into the turmoil of the war that Attila has wreaked upon the world. Verdi's brilliant and dark score continues as we follow the King of the Huns on his conquering travels. 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.
