AIDA

The opera – Now through June 12th

“Relationships are hard work. Especially when it’s between a prisoner of war and her captor. Oh, and their love has to remain a secret (for obvious reasons). Verdi’s epic drama Aida returns to our stage for the first time in 16 years, in a sensational production starring Latonia Moore and Russell Thomas. Director Francesca Zambello conjures a gorgeous world where hieroglyphics by the LA-based artist RETNA creates a striking backdrop to the timeless story. Expect to be further blown away by a huge chorus and orchestra, a ballet, and beautiful music that’s both intimate and heroic in this grandest of grand operas.”
