Verdi's Aida: Chorégies d'Orange
Verdi's powerful masterwork, Aida, comes to life in the heart of the historic Roman Theater of Orange. Sondra Radvanovsky sings the title role in the staging by Paul-Emile Fourny, with Paolo Arrivabeni conducting.
Don't miss the chance to witness Aida in a venue perfectly suited to its grandeur and history. Librettist Camille Du Locle, who was born in Orange, set forth a tragic love story between the Ethiopian slave Aida and the Egyptian general Radamès, from which Verdi composed an opera of rare dramatic intensity, alternating grand spectacle with touching intimacy.
