Opera Australia is bringing its radiant production of Aida, featuring cutting-edge digital sets, to Brisbane in November 2020.

From the famous Triumphal March to the intimate ending, every scene is spectacular. Opulent costumes and props reflect the splendour of Egypt at the height of its powers.

“A captivating cinematic experience that fuses live performance and video.” Time Out
“As magnificent, jaw-dropping, gasp inducing and lavish a staging as you can imagine.” The AU Review

In this special Brisbane event, Francesco Lanzillotta conducts an exciting cast. Magnificent soprano Natalie Aroyan performs as the enslaved princess Aida. Elena Gabouri performs as her rival Amneris and Diego Torre as the man they both love, Radames.

Baritone Amartuvshin Enkhbat delighted audiences at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2015. He sings the commanding role of King Amonasro, the enslaved Ethiopian King.

A huge chorus plus 20 dancers and actors add to the massed grandeur on stage.
