The unusual opera by the ageing master Verdi is among the most popular pieces in the world’s operatic literature. He composed it on commission from the exotic Cairo to be presented as part of the jubilee ceremony marking the opening of the Suez Canal. Even though things didn’t quitter go to the plan and the piece opened later, its celebratory character remained unchanged. The music in Aida brings together the representative lustre of state and military ceremonies with climax of emotional conflicts between the lead characters, along with the outer splendour of mass scenes involving choral and ballet scenes and intimately tuned passages of personal lyrical confessions. Aida isn’t merely an appealing romantic story with captivating music, but also a monumental narrative fresco that is a feast to both an eye and ear.

A number of spectators make the première night extra special – ladies especially like to make most of the event and shine in their finest gown or little black dress.

"We kindly ask our esteemed spectators to respect dress code: business casual."
