Aida

AIDA

Giuseppe Verdi

October 4th & 6th, 2013 at the Valentine Theatre

With its challenging roles, large orchestral and choral forces, massive scenery, and lush costumes, successfully producing Verdi’s masterwork Aida is a major achievement for any opera house. Significantly, it was the first opera ever produced in Toledo in 1959, and launched both the Toledo Opera Guild and what would become today’s Toledo Opera. Our 2013 production will be created in partnership with Opera Carolina and feature a cast of internationally acclaimed guest artists, a substantially expanded Toledo Opera Chorus, strikingly beautiful costumes, sets originally created in 2009 for the Edmonton Opera company, and the Toledo Symphony Orchestra.
