“Musical skill makes Verdi’s Aida sing. The musical accomplishments of the cast of first-rate Verdi singers fully realize his seductive and heart-throbbing music, supported by a capable conductor, stage director, and lighting designer. The unit set, designed by [Tony Award Winner] Michael Yeargan, is a miracle of flexibility and taste, evoking the ancient Egyptian world… The Seattle Opera Chorus has never sounded better.”
