The Estoril Casino Black and Silver Room will host, on the 11th of May, at 9 pm, the opera Aida, one of the most famous works by the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi.
Considered one of the greatest operatic creations of all time, the grand opera Aida, in four acts and eight scenes, explores the drama of war in life and love in ancient Egypt, in the time of the pharaohs, when the Egyptians invaded Ethiopia. A love drama between an Ethiopian slave named Aida, but of noble origin (and enslaved in the Pharaonic kingdom), and an Egyptian general named Radamés, commander of the occupation forces of the slave’s country (Ethiopia).
Upon learning that his daughter, the beautiful Ethiopian princess Aida, was captured by the Egyptians and became a prisoner and slave of the Egyptian princess Amneris, both in love with Ramadés, Amonasro, the king of Ethiopia (Aida’s father) organizes the troops in a final attempt to to release. But, although the young warrior of the Egyptian army corresponds to Aida’s passion, he dreams of returning to this secret love of his crowned with laurels of the fight against the Ethiopians. In the midst of this passion, his condemnation by Aida’s father also appears, who also demands revenge for his daughter’s imprisonment and slavery.
Aida is an opera of an epic character, with a great scenic apparatus, with choirs, ballets, large sets and long acts. It has an exotic character, scenically grand, and with great effects, full of drama and narrative intensity, and a great modernity in terms of message.
Sung in Italian, with a surprising ending, this is a show that deserves to be enjoyed live in the Salão Preto e Prata at Casino Estoril.
