Opera on Screen: Aida

NOV 15

Portland Opera and OMSI are collaborating to present our second season of Opera on Screen, a series of film screenings featuring recent productions from the San Francisco Opera, with a special introduction by a Portland Opera staff member.
Aida is the tale of a bitter love triangle centered on Radames, a captain of the Egyptian guard. He is in love with Aida, a slave girl with a secret—she is actually an Ethiopian princess and the daughter of Egypt’s most powerful enemy. Competing with Aida for his affection is Amneris, the Egyptian king’s daughter. Verdi’s score ranges from the epic “Triumphal March” to intimate scenes of haunting lyric beauty. The production stars Micaela Carosi in the title role and is sung in Italian with English subtitles.
