Verdi's Aida
Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Presents

Verdi’s Aida 

Apr 4 & Apr 6, 2025

Schuster Center


At its heart, Verdi’s majestic opera AIDA is an intimate story of love – forbidden and unrequited —enmeshed in a struggle for imperial power between Egypt and Ethiopia. Aida, an Ethiopian princess held in captivity, secretly falls in love with the handsome general leading the war against her homeland. Full of large, lush musical moments, a massive chorus, grand sets, and dazzling costumes, AIDA transports you to a time of romance and spectacle.
