Aida - G. Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) wrote his “Aida” at a politically highly explosive time: Germany and France were on the brink of war (Franco-Prussian War 1870/71), which is why the premiere could not take place until a year later after the scheduled date: Because both the stage sets and the costumes were stuck in the Prussian occupied Paris. The opera had been commissioned by the Egyptian Viceroy Ismail Pasha. However, not, as often wrongly assumed, for the inauguration of the Suez Canal, but for the opening of the new opera house in Cairo in 1871. Aida shows the versatility of this exceptional Italian composer in its entirety: large-scale mass scenes and choruses are juxtaposed with equally intimate, chamber-play-like scenes that reveal a soul drama that is ingenious in every detail. In this respect, the work can certainly be interpreted as a turning point in Verdi’s oeuvre, as it not only focuses on the vocal parts, but also assigns a new and leading role to the orchestra. Verdi received the 150,000 gold francs demanded for his composition, probably the highest honorarium granted to a composer to date. In addition, he demanded his own trumpets for the famous Triumphal March, the so-called Aida trumpets, which had to be commissioned as a special production. Today "Aida" is one of the most successful of the great operas of the 19th century.

Vittorio Grigolo
The tenor Vittorio Grigolo was born on February 19, 1977 in Arezzo, Tuscany, and grew up in Rome in a family of music lovers. He discovered a passion for music at the age of 4, then joined the Sistine Chapel Choir at the age of 9, where he remained there for four years as a soloist. Vittorio Grigolo made his opera debut at 13 as Little Shepherd in Tosca at the Rome Opera House, opposite Pavarotti. From then on, he was nicknamed Il Pavarottino (the Little Pavarotti) by the Italian press. Vittorio Grigolo joined the Vienna Opera at the age of 18 before becoming the youngest singer debuting on the stage at La Scala in Milan at 23 for two concerts conducted by Riccardo Muti. Attached to his roots, Vittorio Grigolo distinguished himself in various Verdian roles and having studied at a French college, the tenor developed a great interest in French romantic opera.
