- The Plot: Victorious Egypt has captured and enslaved Ethiopia’s princess Aida, which forces its captain of the guard Radamès to choose between his love for Aida and his loyalty to the Pharaoh. Complicating matters is the Pharaoh’s daughter Amneris, who nurses an unrequited love for Radamès.
- Notable Aria: Radamès dreams of glorious victory in battle and winning the hand of the princess in Celeste Aida, whose extended high B-flat at its climax makes it one of the most challenging arias in the tenor’s repertoire
Opera New Hampshire
Opera New Hampshire is a company designed for its venue. A smaller replica of its New York namesake, The Palace Theatre was the grandest theater in New Hampshire upon its construction in 1915. By the early 1960s, it had fallen on hard times, but Union Leader editorialist Jim Finnegan conceived of a new starring attraction: an opera company, to be founded with the help of Mrs. Marshall "Poppy" Carbee and other community leaders.
The company had a rough first decade—the Palace Theatre was closed for half that time and its monarchs deposed—but ever since 1974, it's been regularly filling the air with overtures, arias, and choruses. Along with its full-scale works for adults, a key program is a children's opera series, presented free of charge to help create a new generation of opera lovers.
