About

Love and duty collide and nations clash in Verdi's political drama, starring Elena Stikhina. In this new production, director Robert Carsen situates Verdi's large-scale drama within a contemporary world, framing its power struggles and toxic jealousies in the apparatus of a modern, totalitarian state. Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi's glorious, monumental score.

“On all levels a stimulating, outstandingly professional and well-realised evening.” – The Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“A five-star performance of a five-star opera” – The Daily Express

“Stikhina has a beautiful, crystal clear voice, which is perfect for conveying the anguish of Aida ...” – The Daily Express ★★★★

“Elena Stikhina’s Aida packs considerable power behind her sweet-sounding soprano … it’s rock solid in the pit, Pappano and his players filling in all the colour that’s lacking on stage in this dour but truthful Aida.” – The Guardian ★★★★

“The evening is a triumph for Royal Opera Chorus, on tremendous form, and for the Royal Opera Orchestra who under Antonio Pappano draw out the transparency and inventiveness of Verdi’s score, it’s astonishing combination of chamber-music precision with overblown triumph.” – The Daily Telegraph ★★★★
