Royal Opera House: Aida (12A)

Royal Opera House: Aida

The Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season


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.


In this new production, director Robert Carsen situates Verdi’s large-scale political drama within a contemporary world, framing its power struggles and toxic jealousies in the apparatus of a modern, totalitarian state. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s glorious, monumental score.

Cast: Elena Stikhina (Aida), Francesco Meli (Radames), Agnieszka Rehlis (Amneris), Ludovic Tézier (Amonasro), Soloman Howard (Ramfis), In Sung Sim (King of Egypt)
