“Orla Boylan… she is operating at full throttle‚ sailing above the stave and glorying in her power.” - The Telegraph
The enslaved princess. Her love for one of her oppressors. Her father ready to wage war. A dilemma both personal and political. All set during a large-scale conflict between the Ethiopia and the Egypt of the Pharaohs.
Aida is the grandest of grand operas, celebrated for its visual and vocal spectacle. At its heart it is also a story of moving private struggles. Aida, an Ethiopian princess enslaved in Egypt, is torn between her love for Radames, Captain of the Egyptian Guard, and loyalty to her father, Amonasro. Her solution leads to betrayal and death.
“Gwyn Hughes Jones as Radamès sings superbly, in an all-conquering voice, with enough honey in it for any love song.” - The Guardian
“Orla Boylan… soared with fiery intensity.” - The Spectator
