Become part of AIDA - THE ARENA OPERA SPECTACLE on Thursday, 09. November 2023 in Berlin.

Time required (after successful casting): Only 1 day!

On March 7, 2024, the Mercedes-Benz Arena will transform into ancient Egypt for "AIDA - Das Arena Opern Spektakel" and take the audience on a journey through time: 3,000 years back in time, the Isar River will be swapped for the Nile without further ado, and the Mercedes-Benz Arena will become a world between pharaohs and gods, where the moving love story between the Ethiopian prisoner Aida and the Egyptian general Radames takes place.

Musically, the Hanseatic Symphony Orchestra Hamburg under the direction of Michael Ellis Ingram, the eponymous choir as well as internationally renowned soloists guarantee the corresponding high pleasure. But this production has much more to offer: In addition to a gigantic stage set and a "lifelike" elephant, it is numerous soldiers, priests, court ladies and prisoners that give the production its uniqueness and grandeur and make the opera a unique visual experience.
