If ever there were a 19th-century opera to have stood the test of time it is Verdi’s soaringly romantic and dramatic Aida. Its exotic, golden images of Egypt, spine-tingling arias, potent choruses, conflicting allegiances and cruel twists of fate make it one of the pillars of the grand opera repertoire.
