Opera Hong Kong brings all the drama and pageantry of Verdi’s most famous opera to the majestic stage of the Cultural Centre’s Grand Theatre with a star-studded international cast which includes two of the opera world’s reigning Aidas. Princess Aida is, due to war and bad fortune, a slave. She shares a secret love with Radamès, Egypt’s leading warrior and hero. But Ramadès has been betrothed to the powerful and extremely jealous Princess Amneris. A timeless story of the conflicting duties of love and patriotism, Aida with its spectacle and soaring music, continues to thrill audiences worldwide.
