AIDA at The English National Opera
London

SEPTEMBER 28 - December 2

Aida is a timeless story of duty, love and betrayal amid the clash of war. This is opera on a grand scale, in which ENO's award-winning Chorus and Orchestra will demonstrate their full power. Following his recent "Akhnaten" for ENO, Improbable's Olivier Award-winning director Phelim McDermott stages this distinctive new production. Keri-Lynn Wilson conducts Verdi's score which contrasts swaggering military marches with tender lyricism. Twist, in his ENO debut, collaborates with McDermott and scenic designer Tom Pye to create fluid silks and swirls. Performances begin September 29 at the Coliseum.
