    Synopsis–A love tragedy in Egypt
     
    Aida describes the war between Egypt and Ethiopia; the love between the enslaved Ethiopian princess Aida and an Egyptian military commander Radamès.
     
    Ancient Egypt, during the Pharaoh era, the Egyptian commander is fighting against the Ethiopian King Amonasro. Amneris, the daughter of the Egyptian King loves Radamès. However, Radamès is dreaming both of gaining victory on the battlefield, and of Aida, the Ethiopian slave, with whom he is secretly in love. Aida, who is also secretly in love with Radamès, is the captured daughter of the Ethiopian King Amonasro.
     
    Dances and music to celebrate Radamès' victory take place. Radamès returns victorious and the troops march into the city. Aida recognizes her father, the Ethiopian King Amonasro, among the captives. Aida, Amonasro, and the captured Ethiopians plead with the Egyptian King for mercy, while the Egyptian King is busy preparing his daughter’s marriage.
     
    Radamès feels painful, on one hand, he doesn’t want to marry the Egyptian princess, on the other hand, he is worried about Aida’s safety. In order to keep the two countries from long-term hostility, and for love as well, he decides to set Amonasro and Aida free. Unexpectedly, Amneris who is spying on Radamès, discovers their escape.
     
    Radamès is sentenced to be buried alive. Aida doesn’t want to remain alive alone, so she goes to the vault and decides to die in Radamès arms.
     
    为庆祝苏伊士运河的开通,埃及总督伊斯梅尔·帕夏于1869年下令在开罗建成了一座大型歌剧院,命名为“意大利歌剧院”。剧院落成后的首场演出必须上演一部新创作的高质量歌剧。总督就请当时最负盛名的歌剧作曲家威尔第担当此任。开始,威尔第对此举并无多大兴趣,但阿依达的故事情节深深地打动了他,他最终接受了这一任务。
     
    这是处于人生颠峰,将近六十岁的巨匠威尔第,倾其毕生之经验与技术完成的不朽作品,此时的威尔第已充分展现日益成熟的艺术才华,同时掌握了有关和弦、节奏、管弦乐音色的丰富知识以及不少新技法;除了少部分含有他早期风格外,大部分已是新的威尔第风格──实际上是集当时欧洲音乐成就之大成,并在此基础上提高和发展,到达了一个新的高峰。
     
    直到现在,《阿依达》依然是世界各地最常上演的歌剧之一,同时这也是威尔第规模最庞大的歌剧,融合了梅耶贝尔华丽的舞台效果及瓦格纳式的歌剧精髓,充满了异国风情和优美的旋律,可说是史上最著名的歌剧。其中著名的咏叹调、二重唱、进行曲及舞曲,都是音乐会上最热门的曲目。整部歌剧的特点是音乐旋律优美,场景豪华壮观,气势磅礴,故事精雕细刻,剧情感人肺腑。
     
    威尔第早就洞悉人间的苦难,他用威风凛凛的音乐,将悲情转化为力量,在剧中没有一个角色在巨大的困难前临阵退缩,而是勇敢面对,展现了人性最辉煌的一面,再加上那些节奏雄健的进行曲,《阿伊达》被称为最能鼓舞人心的歌剧,实非偶然。
     
    威尔第歌剧《阿依达》剧情梗概:一个发生在埃及的爱情悲剧
    《阿依达》讲述了古埃及的一个爱情悲剧:埃及军队统帅拉达梅斯率军迎战埃塞俄比亚入侵军队,他的恋人阿依达原是埃塞俄比亚公主,但在战争中被俘,沦为埃及公主安涅丽丝的奴隶,阿依达和她的女主人都爱着拉达梅斯。拉达梅斯请求法老将阿依达嫁给他,作为获胜的奖赏,可法老却先将自己女儿安涅丽丝许配给他。拉达梅斯凯旋后,阿依达恳求他释放成为俘虏的父亲,然后和自己一起逃走。心怀嫉妒的安涅丽丝告发了他们,拉达梅斯被判卖国罪,并以封入金字塔中的方式处死。得知消息的阿依达抢先一步进入金字塔,同心爱的人一起面对死亡。
