OXFORDPROSPECT – Hugh Jeager reviews AIDA at the New Theatre

See on Scoop.itOxford Today

Aida is a grand Verdi opera centred on a love affair that is torn between conflicting personal and national loyalties. The Ethiopian princess Aida has been captured and made the slave of the Egyptian princess Amneris. Amneris desires Radames, captain of the Egyptian guard, but he doesn’t want her and secretly loves Aida. Ethiopia and Egypt are at war, Aida’s father King Amonasro is leading the Ethiopian army and Radames is appointed to lead the Egyptian army. Aida doesn’t know which side to support. Tension and tragedy are assured.
