MARIINSKY's production of "Aida", première on June 11, 2011 at the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg during the White Nights Festival.
Aida is a very personal opera in which all the characters are victims of their own actions. Everyone is always ready to cry “war, war…” but nobody thinks and nobody looks for other solutions. We are made not of water, but of gasoline.
This production of Aida succeeded in recreating a powerful representation of the realism and madness in us all.
