Aida comes to Shanghai

(China Daily)

08:48, June 11, 2012

For those who missed Aida the last time the opera was played in Shanghai, catch the epic drama, which will be played again in June.

Set in ancient Egypt, Aida by Verdi is both a heartbreaking love story and an epic drama, filled with spectacular scenes. Violeta Urmana stars as the title role of the enslaved Ethiopian princess, with Dolora Zajick as her rival. Johan Botha plays Radames, commander of the Egyptian army, and Daniele Gatti conducts. Among the highlights is the celebrated Triumphal March.

7:15 pm, June 18 and 19. Shanghai Grand Theater, 300 People's Avenue, Shanghai. 021- 6386-8686.
