Aida...

Last Friday Paul, Stu and I went to see Aida to the Royal Opera House in London's glitzy Covent Garden.

The plot revolves around Aida, an Ethiopian princess, who is captured and brought into slavery in Egypt. A military commander, Radames, then struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the Pharaoh. To complicate the story further, Radames is loved by the Pharaoh's daughter Amneris, although he does not return her feelings. Much machinations later... hey... it's opera - things never end well.

It was a full-on all guns blazing production and quite frankly we loved it. As you can see, we had posh seats too.
