|Teatru Astra announces AIDA for 2016|
Any way you look at it, Aida is peerless in Italian melodrama. All the great ingredients which make up Italian Opera are there: grandeur and intimacy; poignancy and implacability; vengeance and redemption; love and envy.It is indeed the triumph of Woman.There is perhaps no better way to put it. Aida is truly universal.
Indeed, its appeal is universal, transcending all cultural barriers and mindsets.All that Egypt stands for Ã¢ timelessness Ã¢ Aida stands for.VerdiÃ¢s inspired score is absolutely ravishing and engaging from the first half-whispered to the final half-whispered strains: in between it is glorious music pouring forth unchecked and all-enveloping: superb choral writing alternates with unforgettable solo arias and concertati stand for the best and finest in Italian opera.
If you think you have seen it all at the Teatru Astra when it comes to opera, just wait until you see the new production which is being designed for the 27th and the 29th October 2016!
