NMSC-4c_2The grandest of grand opera – never before performed in New Mexico!  In partnership with the New Mexico Symphonic Chorus, Opera Southwest will present the New Mexico Premiere of Verdi’s monumental masterwork.

Set against the exotic backdrop of war and conquest in ancient Egypt, Aida follows a  love triangle of two powerful women and the man they both love. Filled with Verdi’s best known music, it’s a tour-de-force of choral and vocal power you won’t want to miss.
