Toronto – Love eradicates borders in this powerful war-time epic. Aida, an imprisoned princess, faces an impossible choice: remain loyal to her family and country or abandon it all to be with her secret love, a young general who is also her captor. This grand Italian opera, by Giuseppe Verdi, has long enthralled audiences with its thrilling score and emotional storytelling. Aida reunites soprano Tamara Wilson and tenor Russell Thomas as the story’s central lovers; the two recently starred in the COC’s “revolutionary” (Wall Street Journal) Otello in 2019. Aida runs for seven performances at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts on April 18, 22, 26, 30, May 2, 5, 8, 2020.
