On the occasion of verdi's 200th birth anniversary, the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb associates with the National Theatre in Rijeka to produce one of Verdi's most spectacular opera, Aida .
Directed by Balász Kovalik and conducted by Antonello Allemandi, the opera is presented in a scenography by UTE personal member Csaba Antal.
Radames, the winning Egyptian warrior is in love with Aida, an enslaved Ethiopian princess. The pharaoh’s daughter Amneris plans to seduce Radames for herself which results in a bitter love triangle of the most intense emotions. This inspiring story about old Egypt, mystical rituals and forbidden passions is abundant with beautiful arias, powerful ensembles, ballet scenes and exciting orchestral music. In the year when we celebrate Verdi’s anniversary, Aida is at the same time the first co-production of two national theatres in Zagreb and Rijeka.
