Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly praised chorus and full orchestra

VERDI AIDA

With a new spectacular interpretation of the classic opera ‘Aida’



Starring Olga Perrier the international French Soprano as Aida and Liza Kadelnik the celebrated mezzo from the Romanian National Opera as Amneris*

Aida, the grandest of all Ellen Kent’s operas, returns in Autumn 2016 to the UK with a stunning new traditional production, boasting an impressive new set built by Set-Up Scenery in the UK, who also build sets for the Royal Opera Covent Garden.

In Aida, the splendour of Egypt is set against the grandeur of the Coliseum of Rome with Ellen Kent’s direction influenced by the ancient Greek dramas of Euripides and symbolising the powerful religious hold of the priests of Egypt. This tragic story of war, jealousy and revenge at whose heart is the doomed love of the beautiful Ethiopian slave girl, Aida, and the Egyptian hero, Radames, is brought to life in a production set against one of the greatest pieces of music Verdi ever wrote with the well known arias “Celeste Aida”, “Ritorna Vincitor” and the great chorus piece the ‘Triumphal March’



'Visually and vocally gripping from start to finish'
The Independent

'Bursting with colour, grandeur and wealth'
Edinburgh Evening News

'Aida has one of the most imposing sets you will see on an operatic stage'
Manchester Evening News

'Aida was thrillingly portrayed by the French soprano, Olga Perrier'
Oxford Times Spring 2014

'Olga Perrier, the French soprano, who took the role of Aida was simply wonderful with a brilliant radiant voice and acting talent she gave the role all the intensity, vitality and passion that it needs. What a discovery Ellen Kent has made!”'
Oxford Prospect Spring 2014


Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
