Princess Aida has been kidnapped: a valuable prize in a war between Egypt and Ethiopia. Meanwhile, the ambitious soldier Radames wrestles with his feelings for her. As they draw closer together, each must make an agonizing choice between their loyalty to home, and their love for each other.

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s glorious, monumental score.

Directed by Robert Carsen, conducted by Antonio Pappano and sung by Elena Stikhina (Aida), Francesco Meli (Radames), Agnieszka Rehlis (Amneris, Ldovic Tézier (Amnasro), Soloman Howard (Ramfis) and In Sung Sim (King of Egypt).

Giacomo Puccini

Paris, 1900. Penniless writer Rodolfo believes that art is all he needs – until he meets Mimì, the lonely seamstress who lives upstairs.

Richard Jones’s production evokes the vivid contrasts of fin de siècle Paris, from Bohemian apartments to glittering arcades.
