Contemporary Art meets Opera

Egyptian Museum

March 17 Marzo – June 5, 2022

Aida, daughter of two worlds

This exhibition traces the genesis of Verdi's work by exploring the historical and social context of an Egypt still linked to the Ottoman Empire but already striving for independence and a modernist path. An unprecedented approach was developed with a scientific project created by the Egyptian Museum in collaboration with the Ricordi Archive and the National Institute of Verdian Studies: images, documents and finds reveal a new perspective of understanding and listening to Aida.
