Show Information
One of Guiseppe Verdi?s most famous operas, Aida is based on the French prose of Camille du Locle, with a scenario by Auguste Mariette. This opera in four acts is based on the libretto by Antonio Ghislanzoni. The opera first premiered at the Cairo Opera House, on 24 December, 1871 and was born of the desire of the Khedive of Egypt for an opera that echoed Egypt?s ancient past. The opera is based on the original 1871 Cairo production. In fact stage director Abdel Moneim Kemel, Stage designers Makhmud Khassan and Khaggag El Sayed and Ballet-master Erminia Gambarelli are all from Cairo Opera House.

Playing Radames is Oleg Kulko one of the principal singers of Bolshoi Theatre. He has sung Radames at the Metropolitan Opera New York and at La Scala, Milan to critical acclaim.
