In Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Administrative Region
Opera Hong Kong brings all the drama and pageantry of Verdi’s most famous opera to the majestic stage of the Cultural Centre’s Grand Theatre with a star-studded international cast which includes two of the opera world’s reigning Aïdas. Princess Aïda is, due to war and bad fortune, a slave. She shares a secret love with Radamès, Egypt’s leading warrior and hero. But Ramadès has been betrothed to the powerful and extremely jealous Princess Amneris. A timeless story of the conflicting duties of love and patriotism, Aïda with its spectacle and soaring music, continues to thrill audiences worldwide.
