English National Opera present Verdi’s timeless Aida at the London Coliseum
Aida must choose between the man she loves and the homeland she longs for. Betrayal is the only option.
Aida is a timeless story of duty, love and betrayal amid the clash of war.
This is opera on a grand scale, in which ENO’s award-winning Chorus and Orchestra will demonstrate their full power.
Following his recent Akhnaten for ENO, Improbable’s Olivier Award-winning director Phelim McDermott stages this distinctive new production.
Keri-Lynn Wilson conducts Verdi’s score which contrasts swaggering military marches with tender lyricism.
Sharing the title role are two sopranos – Latonia Moore and Morenike Fadayomi – both of whom are making their ENO debuts. As Radamès, we welcome back the popular ENO artist Gwyn Hughes Jones.
Aida will run from 28 September 2017 until 3 December 2017 at the London Coliseum.
