Aida - Guiseppe Verdis masterpiece performed during Salzburg Festspiele in 2017!
During the Salzburg Festivals, was Guiseppe Verdis popular opera Aida only performed once, in 1979, scened and played by Herbert von Karajan. For its growing, Sazlburg Festival gathered a fantastic artistic team which made this the most requested and sold production in the history of the Festival. The artisitc team comprises Ana Netrebko in the title role, directed by irish-born artist, Shirin Nehat, who is now based in New York, and lead by the worlds greatest Verdi-composer, Riccardo Muti. While Aida is one of the most vulgar pieces of opera litterature, it also consist of a deep reflection of the power hierarchies kept people's fate. Even though it is most known for the sonic splendor from the famous "Triumphal Scene", it is still among Verdis most intimate pieces, something he shows very strongly through a focus on the private feelings that one can experience by three victims in a tragic love triangle: Radamès, general in the Egyptian army, and the women who competes for his love, Faraos daughter Amneris and her Ethiopian slave Aida.
