Love for Aida leads Radamès, Captain of the Egyptian Guard, to betray his country. The lovers are only united in death.
Aida is the definition of a timeless opera classic. Year to year, its music moves the audience, and its social themes have remained current throughout history. The critically-acclaimed production of the Finnish National Opera alludes not only to the reign of the pharaohs, but also to the conflicts of the modern world. Aida is best known for its spectacular drama and enormous crowd scenes, but in all its majesty, it is also an intimate depiction of forbidden love.
