Aida : A Collaboration
Summers, Houston Grand Opera Artistic and Music Director says, “I’m thrilled that our artistic
collaboration will create dazzling new choreography for HGO’s Aida, as
well as display the incredible strength and scope of Houston’s vibrant arts
an Ethiopian princess enslaved to Amneris – the princess of Egypt – has fallen
in love with the warrior Radames. As he rides into battle, Aida is torn between
her love for him, allegiance to her country, and loyalty to her family. Radames
dreams that if he returns triumphant, he will free Aida and marry her. But
Amneris longs for Radames' affections, too. Romance and hope turn to crushing
tragedy as the story unfolds.
Walsh will debut original choreography and stage movement for the production
and DWDT dancers will help bring the story to life.
have a great respect for opera and have really enjoyed working with local
organizations Mercury Baroque and Opera in the Heights on their productions in
the past,” says Walsh. “I'm now happy to partner with HGO and very excited to
be a part of Aida.”
Aida will run for seven performances
through Saturday, November 9, 2013.
