Aida : A Collaboration

Patrick 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 scene.”

In Aida, 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.

Dominic Walsh will debut original choreography and stage movement for the production and DWDT dancers will help bring the story to life.

“I 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.
