Profile

The Dallas Opera kicks off its new “Pursuits of Passion” season with Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi’s exotically-set drama of love, loyalty, and power. Aïda, an Ethiopian princess, is captured, transported to Egypt, and enslaved without her captors realizing that she’s of noble blood. The dashing military captain Radamès is torn between his secret love for the beautiful slave girl and his duty to the pharaoh, while the pharaoh’s daughter, Princess Amneris, loves him jealously from afar. When war with Ethiopia becomes imminent, Radamès hopes to chosen as the army commander in order to free Aïda. Since this is an opera, their love will almost certainly be their undoing.
