      The Sood Family presents Verdi’s AIDA

      The Sood Family is proud to present AIDA, the grandest of all operas. Commissioned to celebrate the opening of the Suez Canal and has been thrilling audiences since its 1871 Cairo premiere. In the shadow of the Pharaohs’ pyramids, a bitter war dooms a star-crossed romance between the enslaved Ethiopian princess Aida and a powerful Egyptian warrior. Will Aida be manipulated by her father into choosing country over love? Absent from the Knoxville Opera stage for 18 years, Verdi’s epic returns with 200 performers and its magnificent Triumphal Scene. Performed in Italian with English translations. Opera previews hosted by Maestro Salesky begin 45 minutes prior to each performance.
