    This is a story of love so strong it defies enemy lines. This is a story of a kingdom in triumph and a nation in chains.

    This is a story of betrayal.

    Verdi’s monumental, transcendent music makes this historic epic a perennial favourite. Our new production comes from the celebrated Italian director Davide Livermore.

    He is renowned for high-tech, projected sets so tangible, it’s hard to believe they are just light and shadow. Immersive, impressive, intimate — this is the future of spectacle on stage.

    Thrilling young conductor Andrea Battistoni returns to lead this production. Three magnificent casts perform Verdi’s difficult leads. You don’t want to miss the stunning soprano of Amber Wagner, paired with Elena Gabouri as Amneris and Riccardo Massi as Radamès.

    Later in the season, rising star Natalie Aroyan takes on her dream role, and Clémentine Margaine, Milijana Nikolic, Diego Torre and Yonghoon Lee join the all-star lineup.

    Role: Amneris
