Verdi:   Aida (in concert)


Program Notes

Celebrating Verdi’s 200th birthday, Ravinia presents his complete four-act opera—one of the most popular and important in music history—the Egyptian-set Aida. Adding to the resounding splendor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will be acclaimed tenor Roberto Alagna in his Ravinia debut; Michelle DeYoung, one of the most prominent alumni of RSMI; and, in the title role, Latonia Moore, whom Opera News described as a “born stage performer” when she portrayed Aida at the Met. The rousing score features “Celeste Aida,” the “Triumphal March” “Ritorna vincitor” and wonderfully exotic ballet music.
