Giuseppe Verdi's Aida is one of the most loved and most frequently performed of all operas. Composed at the request of the King of Egypt for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1871, the opera tells the tragic tale of a love triangle in which an enslaved Ethiopian princess' passionate love for the military leader Radames is doomed when he's ordered to marry the Pharaoh's daughter. Aida strikes a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy, all of which you can see on stage at Miramar Cultural Center.
