This new production of Verdi’s opera Aida for the 2013 Verona Festival, designed by La Fura dels Baus, transforms the arena into a huge desert, a dramatic setting for the most popular opera of the Verona Festival. The young talented conductor Omer Meir Wellber leads the Orchestra dell’Arena di Verona.

Set against the epic backdrop of ancient Egypt, Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida (1871) is an intimate love story about one man and two women who get caught between their personal feelings and the fate of their nations. The great Triumphal Scene at the center of Act II ranks among opera’s most celebrated moments.
