The Aida opera was written by the great composer Giuseppe Verdi and the famous librettist Antonio Ghislanzoni. It was written for the opening of the Khedivial Opera House in Cairo, Egypt, on December 24, 1871. The following year, in 1872, Aida was shown for the first time in Europe at Milan's La Scala, which enthralled the audience.
Aida and La Traviata and Il Trovatore helped cement Verdi's reputation as one of the best composers in history. Aida is considered to be one of the best operas ever written. Even today, his works are still played to captivate crowds worldwide.
Aida is a sad story about forbidden love. It shows how the Ethiopian princess Aida and the young Egyptian warrior Radamès try to choose between their love for each other and their devotion to their countries.
Aida has been taken prisoner by the Egyptians, who don't know who she is, and is now a slave. She and Radamès have fallen in love. Amneris, the Princess of Egypt, also loves Radamès. When Amneris discovers Aida and Radamès are in love, she threatens her and says she will win this fight.
King Amonasro, Aida's father, finds out that his daughter has been taken and goes to war with Egypt. Thus, the King of Egypt makes Radamès the leader of his army and starts an aggressive war against the Ethiopians. The Egyptians win the battle and bring back several prisoners, including Amonasro, who doesn't tell them who he is. Amonasro finds out that Radamès and Aida are courting, and he asks his daughter to get military secrets.
The King of Egypt announces that Radamès and Amneris will get married to celebrate their victory. Radamès wants to talk about his relationship with Aida to escape the wedding, but he can’t. Aida asks her father, who is trying to hide in the same room, about the Egyptian troops to help them escape. But before anyone can do anything, Amneris comes clean. She knows everything because she heard it, and she calls Radamès a traitor.
Radamès is put on trial by Ramfis in the temple. He is offered to save himself by naming the traitors, but he turns it down. He will be laid to rest in the temple of Vulcan, under the altar. Aida is awaiting him when he goes to his tomb. Amonasro died during the escape, so now the only person she still cares about is the man she loves. They accept what destiny has for them, and Amneris prays for peace over the tomb.
