Award-winning soprano to appear at Rose Theatre Kingston for opera set in Ancient Egypt
A father battles to save his enslaved daughter – but the man holding her captive has fallen in love with her.
Travel back in time to Egypt’s Old Kingdom and the era of the pharaohs, and witness a tale of love and war to rival any modern Hollywood movie.
Follow Aida, the captured daughter of an Ethiopian king, and her secret lover Ramades, an Egyptian military commander, in this classic 19th-century opera.
The performance at the Rose Theatre stars award-winning soprano Nadine Mortimer-Smith, who has appeared on BBC radio and at the London Festival of American Music.
It has passion, unrequited love, betrayal, revenge, self-sacrifice and spectacle – all set to stirring music including trumpet marches, love duets and ethereal harps.
Aida; Rose Theatre, High Street, Kingston
January 25, 2014; £40
