Zandra Rhodes’ vivid designer’s eye enhances Verdi’s vision of ancient Egypt in this stunning production. Acclaimed in London, San Francisco and Houston, the brilliant sets and costumes are seen in San Diego for the first time, creating a riot of color and pageantry. The tragic love triangle of a Pharaoh’s daughter competing with her own Ethiopian slave for the love of an Egyptian general is one of the most-beloved operas.
Filled with great arias and choruses, including the famous Triumphal March, "Aida" demands extraordinary singers in every role.
