Royal Opera House Live: Aida

Sorry, this event has sold out

Love and duty collide and nations clash in Verdi’s political drama, starring Elena Stikhina and conducted by Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano.

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 agonising 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.

Sung in Italian with English sub-titles.

Running time: 3 hours and 25 minutes with a 20 minute interval

Film classification: 12A. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
