Aida is a typical opera about the relationship of one man with two women as well as about the animosity between two nations - Ethiopians and Egyptians. It also tells a story of a woman's heart as she has to decide between her love to a man from an oppressing nation and the loyalty to her homeland.

Aida is one of Giuseppe Verdi's top operas. Aida opened Verdi's last composing period - after that he only wrote two more Shakespearean operas: Othello and Falstaff. Verdi spent a long time preparing for Aida - he studied Egyptian literature, visited Egypt and tried to emulate the period colouring in his musical speech.
