The grandest of grand operas and a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. A bitter love triangle plays itself out against a backdrop of war and cultural oppression in this compelling tale of conflicting loyalties and forbidden passion. As Aida, soprano Micaela Carosi’s “voice wasn’t only luminous; she was alive in the role…every fear, frustration and outburst of love registered in her voice, face, body” (San Jose Mercury News). Tenor Marcello Giordani plays Radames, “mustering a ringing sound and suitably ardent phrasing” in the opera’s climax (San Francisco Chronicle). “Mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick delivered a powerhouse performance as Amneris, cloaking her unstoppable dramatic fury in plush and impeccably controlled tones.” – San Francisco Chronicle. “As Amonasro, baritone Marco Vratogna emitted gorgeous, orchestra-defying sounds.” – San Francisco Classical Voice.
