Thursdays at the Opera - Aida

Aida, Giuseppe VerdiConductor Daniel Oren with Hui He, Marco Berti, Andrea Ulbrich, Ambrogio Maestri, 150’A series of screenings dedicated to Italian Opera Introduced by Deirdre O' Grady, Emeritus Professor of Italian and Comparative Studies University College Dublin. The grand scale and magnificent acoustics of the Roman arena in Verona are ideally suited to the pageantry of Verdi’s Egyptian opera, presented here in a staging that is true to the original 1913 production, framed by obelisks and sphinxes and filled with chorus and dancers. Chinese soprano Hui He has won international acclaim for her portrayal of the eponymous slave girl whose forbidden love for the war hero Radames (Marco Berti) brings death to them both.
