On November 10 & 14, Kristine Opolais stars as the title role of Verdi’s Aida at the Lithuanian National Opera. Ms. Opolais will make her debut with the company in the title role, a work she last performed completely 15 years ago in Riga. The last time she performed a part of the work was in 2016 in a semi-staged version at Tanglewood. Previously, critics raved, stating, “she sang her part beautifully.” Now, seven years later, the Latvian soprano will bring it back to the stage.

Ms. Opoalis will share the stage with star-studded cast, including Gaston Rivero as Radamès, Justina Gringytė as Amneris, Tadas Girininkas as Ramfis, Kostas Smoriginas as Amonasro, Liudas Norvaišas as Il Re, Rafailas Karpis as Messenger, and Austėja Zinkevičiūtė as the High Priestess.
