Set in Egypt, Aida was commissioned by and first performed at Cairo’s Khedivial Opera House on 24 December 1871. Appropriately staged in The Egyptian Theatre which provides the perfect background and size (the opera house in Cairo seated only around 850) for Verdi’s opera.

Each has thrilling music to sing as the drama unfolds in the smoldering atmosphere of darkly mysterious 15th-century Spain. The “Anvil Chorus," Leonora’s “Miserere," Manrico’s stirring call to arms—these are just a few of the fabulous highlights that make Il trovatore a feast of sumptuous singing.
