Aida

Washington National Opera Look-In

Theater, music, and dance come together in this introduction to opera and Verdi’s Aida, one of the world’s most famous operas. An epic drama, this opera tells of Aida, an Ethiopian princess held captive by the Egyptians, who is torn between love and loyalty to her people. At this Look-In, students hear amazing performances; see demonstrations of behind-the scenes technology, lighting, and stagecraft; and get a glimpse into the many careers available in stage performance, both onstage and behind the curtains. Featuring striking sets and costumes inspired by the vibrant hieroglyphics and calligraphy of visionary artist RETNA, this new production lends a modern edge to the classic story.
