Catch the epic historic opera Aida at the Sydney Opera House and be blown away by the grand scale and splendor of Egypt at its height of power brought to life with towering digital screens and special effects.

Why Watch Aida

Verdi's monumental opera Aida comes to the Sydney Opera House with a timeless production piece from Davide Livermore. With towering floor-to-ceiling digital screens that will create ever-changing set-pieces using immersive digital video design, you will find yourself immersed in the world of Ancient Egypt at the height of its power. Giampaolo Bisanti and Tahu Matheson conduct two magnificent casts. Sensational sopranos Leah Crocetto and Elena Guseva perform as the enslaved princess, Aida. Elena Gabouri reprises her critically acclaimed turn as Aida’s rival, Amneris, before Agnieszka Rehlis joins the cast. Yonghoon Lee is a powerful Radamès, the man they both love, before Andeka Gorrotxategi joins the cast, following his stunning Calàf in Turandot. This opera promises to be a sensational experience, an extravagant feast for both your eyes and ears!

The Story

The Egyptians have captured and enslaved Aida, an Ethiopian princess. An Egyptian military commander, Radamès, struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the King of Egypt. To complicate the story further, the King's daughter Amneris is in love with Radamès, although he does not return her feelings. This is a story of love so strong it defies enemy lines. This is a story of betrayal.
