About Aida

Aida must choose between the man she loves and the homeland she longs for. Betrayal is the only option.

Aida is a timeless story of duty, love and betrayal amid the clash of war. This is opera on a grand scale, in which ENO’s award-winning Chorus and Orchestra will demonstrate their full power.

Following his recent Akhnaten for ENO, Improbable’s Olivier Award-winning director Phelim McDermott stages this distinctive new production. Keri-Lynn Wilson conducts Verdi’s score which contrasts swaggering military marches with tender lyricism.

Sharing the title role are two sopranos – Latonia Moore and Morenike Fadayomi – both of whom are making their ENO debuts. As Radamès, we welcome back the popular ENO artist Gwyn Hughes Jones.
