Aida on Sydney Harbour

About

In a spectacular Egyptian setting, Aida, which centres on an epic love triangle, is one of Verdi’s most famous operas.

Egypt needs a hero to lead their army, and the High Priest has chosen Radamès. Through victory in battle, he hopes to win the hand of the beautiful slave girl Aida – handmaiden to the princess Amneris, and secretly, an Ethiopian princess.

Aida is torn between her love for the Egyptian hero and her despair for the country he must march against – her homeland. And the Princess Amneris, who also desires Radamès, is beginning to have suspicions that her hero might prefer her slave.

Aida is an assault on the senses; the stunning backdrop of Sydney’s skyline and beautiful harbour, stars, a crescent moon and the glittering kaleidoscope spectacle on the stage – from the giant bust of Nefertiti to the striking costumes, live camels and a spectacular fireworks display.
