Verdi wrote the four-act opera Aida – his third to last music theatre piece – at the behest of the Egyptian Khedive Ismail Pasha. Verdi imbued his music with apparent local colour by intermittently inserting passages that because of their instrumentation and melody have an exotic sound. The plot revolves around a love triangle, with two women loving the same man: the relatively powerful Amneris and the slave Aida both love the army captain Radames. Another important theme is, “Does love for another person transcend love for one’s fatherland or the laws that bind a community?”, along with the third theme of private happiness being shattered by the inexorable power apparatus of the influential.
