Aida – Opera Queensland
Opera Queensland’s main stage season ends with Verdi’s Aida, a co-production with Opera Australia that plays the Lyric Theatre, QPAC. Starring Australian soprano Natalie Aroyan in the title role, Aida’s set is defined by 10 automated mobile screens that transform the space through visuals and light. The production played to sold out houses in Sydney, wowing audiences with the quality of music and wonder of its visuals. CEO Patrick Nolan said, “It is a very dynamic and highly-visual experience, a beautiful expression of the music and a spectacular way to explore Verdi’s blockbuster opera”.
