About the Event
Enter the dramatic universe of Giuseppe Verdi's 'Aida', as interpreted by the award‐winning stage director, Benedikt von Peter, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
Far from the bombastic parades for which 'Aida' is most famous, Benedikt von Peter sees the opera as an intimate story of love and societal pressure. He distributes the musicians throughout the theater, breaking down traditional boundaries and emphasizing the power of the 'public eye', which follows the young Egyptian officer, Radames.
Radames hopes to gain power and the hand of the enslaved Ethiopian princess, Aida. But the Pharaoh intends for Radames to marry his daughter Amneris. When Aida's and Radames' love is discovered, they make the ultimate choice.
In Italian, with German and English surtitles.
Please note: This production has a special seating arrangement. The orchestra and choir will be placed within the theater.
