Opéra de Montréal opens the season with Aida by Giuseppe Verdi at the time of ancient Egypt.
Aida is an Ethiopian slave and serves Amneris the daughter of the king of Egypt. She is facing a terrible dilemma because she has to choose between his love for Radamès, the new commander of the Egyptian army, and his father, the king of Ethiopia, at war with the Egyptians.
Above all that, Amneris is also in love with Radamès and aware that his heart only beats for Aida. Day after day, she pretends to be affectionate with Amneris while she becomes increasingly jealous and angry…
Between all this drama, we hope that love will survive…
