Fuego!



Aida~Opera Monumental!

Saturday night John & I attended a spectacular performance of Aida in Torreon at Estaduio Revolucion. The world premiere was in Monterrey Mexico 2 nights before Torreon's performance. There were 180 Actors, a chorus of 80 & a massive stage with 27 meter screen that had images of Ancient Egypt which seemed to sweep the audience into the production. Set in Ancient Egypt the plot of Aida has all the elements of any great story: Doomed love, War, Betrayal & Jealousy. We were blown away by the Scenery & Fire that is used to punctuate the storyline & could actually feel the heat in our VIP seating. The show is billed as Monumental Opera on Fire! Priceless! People Watching in Torreon on a Saturday night: Magnifico!
