Aida, one of the most popular and most performed operas in all theaters all over the world was commissioned by Giuseppe Verdi by the Egyptian Viceroy Isma 'il Pasha, (who wanted to give his subjects a 'national opera'), for the opening of the Suez Canal, but above all to celebrate the inauguration, in Cairo, of the new Opera House, (the dates nearly coincide). But the opera was, anyway, delayed and was performed, one year later, on Christmas Eve in 1871, because the scenery and costumes were supposed to arrive from Paris, and the French Capital was at the time isolated because of the Prussians' siege.

The Egyptian Opera by Verdi was born when the composer from Busseto was almost turning sixty. Within the four acts that make up Aida, triumphs, dances, parades of slaves, great scenes with armies ready for war and (sometimes) even horses and elephants, and then love betrayals, propitiatory dances and much more. In short a great sumptuous show, (not by chance, in this respect, we talk of the Italian perspective of the French Grand-Opera), but also a work full of novelty and musical substance, the creation of a musician who has reached his full maturity.
