Verdi's classic opera, performed in Pula's ancient Roman amphitheatre
A spectacular opera in a spectacular setting, Verdi’s Egypt-based warble fest takes over Pula Arena for what looks like being an unforgettable night. In the story, the ancient Egyptians have captured Aida, an Ethiopian princess. Radamès, an Egyptian military commander, is torn between his feelings for the enslaved princess and his duty to the King of Egypt, whose daughter Amneris is in love with Radamès. Which will prevail, love or loyalty?
