Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet collaborates with the Manitoba Opera

We are so pleased to be collaborating with the Manitoba Opera on their performance of Aida.

Amneris, daughter of the King of Egypt, loves Radames, the captain of the Egyptian guard. But he loves Amneris' Ethiopian slave, Aida, who loves him back. What he doesn't know is that Aida's father is Amonasro, the King of Ethiopia and his country's greatest enemy.

Amonasro convinces Aida to pry a crucial battle secret from Radames, under the guise of information they need for safe elopement. His fellow Egyptians overhear his treachery and sentence him to be buried alive. Once inside the vault, he finds his beloved, Aida, who chooses to die with him rather than live without him.

Jorden Morris, famed choreographer of Moulin Rouge ® – The Ballet choreographs 3 short dance sections of the grand opera. Performing will be RWB School Aspirants Jera Wolfe, Charlie Riddiford, Zachary Rogers, and former RWB Company dancer Catherine Rutherford.

We are looking forward to this lovely evening of music and dance. For more information please see the Manitoba Opera website.
