Cincinnati Opera announced its cast for their upcoming production of 'Aida' this summer, with soprano Mary Elizabeth Williams as the title role of Aida. Single tickets will be available beginning on April 25, 2022. The production will be sung in Italian with English translations projected. Ensembles involved in this production are Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Ballet, and the Cincinnati Opera Chorus. The production is by Opéra de Montréal, Pittsburgh Opera, and Utah Opera.
"Experience the grandest of all grand operas in this lavish production that evokes the opulence and splendor of Ancient Egypt. As war rages between enemy nations, a forbidden love burns brightly between Radamès, an Egyptian warrior, and Aida, his captive. But Aida’s keeping a secret of her own—she’s the daughter of the Ethiopian king and deeply devoted to her people. Will she betray Radamès to save her nation or risk everything to follow her heart? From its star-crossed lovers to its thunderous “Triumphal March”— featuring a 60-voice chorus—Aida is the very definition of epic and a passionate romance for the ages." -Cincinnati Opera
