Giuseppe Verdi
Antonio Ghislanzoni nach Camille du Locle

A work that gravitates back and forth between the grandest of grand opera and intimate drama. Over and over again, we hear the sound of singing behind walls. Don’t these walls also have ears? The pharaoh’s daughter Amneris is to marry. She has been offered to the officer Radames as a reward for his victory in battle over the enemy. Whom would Aida love if she were not a war prisoner? … The effect of state power and war on human relationships.

In Italian with German surtitles
