Singapore Lyric Opera’s opening night of Verdi’s Aida

The Singapore Lyric Opera proudly presented Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida for the first time at Esplanade Theatre which opened on June 1. The highly anticipated production – directed by Andrew Sinclair – had a stellar cast of international and local singers, a 100-strong chorus and over 70 orchestra members. First performed at Cairo’s Khedivial Opera House on 24 December 1871, Verdi’s Aida remains as one of the most-performed and well-loved operas in the world! Patrons, partners and ambassadors were invited to a reception before the opera began.
