Aida

Verdi’s AIDA, represented by Rimrock Opera, April 27

Aida is an opera of grand proportions. Pyramids, priestesses, dancing girls, and armies frame a doomed love triangle. Aida, the enslaved Ethopian princess, and Radames, leader of Egyptian army that conquered her homeland, love each other. But, Amneris, the jealous daughter of the Pharaoh, wants Radames to herself. Arias, choruses and orchestra music work together to present Verdi as a moving tragedy. The main performance is at the Alberta Bair Theatre at 7:30pm.

Happy spring in Billings, Montana!
