Opera on the Nile.
Opens Saturday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m.
Aïda is often thought of as the most lavish of operas, and Tulsa Opera is treating it no differently. Giuseppe Verdi’s opera of an enslaved Ethiopian princess and her forbidden love affair with the leader of the Egyptian army is high on drama and complete with jealousy, deception and betrayal. And, it is set in the age of the pharaohs, which adds an exotic touch to this favorite work. Tulsa Opera revisits this tale sung in Italian with English subtitles. Adrienne Danrich stars in the title role along with Dana Beth Miller and Peter Lindskoog. Find them in sync with the Tulsa Oratorio Chorus, Tulsa Ballet II and the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra at Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s Chapman Music Hall, 101 E. Third St. Aïda opens at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 20, and continues at 7:30 p.m. April 26 and at 2:30 p.m. April 28. Tickets are $25-$98 each, available at www.tulsaopera.com.
