Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko debuts as Aida in this 30th Anniversary revival of Sonja Frisell’s production set in Ancient Egypt, where the Ethiopian Aida lives a life of slavery.

She and the Egyptian warrior Radamès, sung by tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko, have fallen in love, although the princess Amneris—mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili—is an implacable rival for Radamès’s affections. Then, when Radamès goes into battle, he unwittingly captures Aida’s father as a prisoner of war.

As Aida and Radamès face impossible choices between patriotism, passion, and paternal bonds, the stage is set for tragedy.
