aidaSan Carlo

The San Carlo entrust itself to the ‘pyrotechnics’ of Franco Dragone to open the opera and ballet season with Aida, which is chosen to celebrate, in 2013, the bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth. The director,  inventor of the magical universe of the Cirque du Soleil, here at his first experience with opera, promises to amaze, in his typical style, with a show uniting visual virtuosity and the use of ‘avant guard’ technologies. Directed by Nicola Luisotti.
