The Semperoper’s new staging of Aida is an exciting debut right across the board. It marks the first collaboration between the Berlin actress and director, Katharina Thalbach, and the world-famous conductor, Christian Thielemann, for both of whom this four-act operatic tour de force is new terrain. In Thalbach’s interpretation of the work, the tragic love of Aida, an enslaved Ethiopian princess, and the Egyptian army general, Radames, reflects the critical situation of the modern individual. The opera is thus a plea for the utopian power of love. As was to be expected, the Dresden Aida stars some of the world’s finest singers. The title role is sung by Bulgarian soprano Krassimira Stoyanova, who is joined by Francesco Meli as Radamès and Georg Zeppenfeld as Ramfis.
