I recently had the chance to look at some of the sets, costumes and props for Aida up close, and what I saw was intriguing. Because the production is new for the 2010/2011 season, we're keeping the details under wraps for now—but that doesn't mean I can't share a few hints!
1. This Amneris is a very glamourous and stylish woman.
2. A few of the costumes are appropriately macabre.
3. There will indeed be flora and fauna on stage–but not necessarily at the times you expect.
4. The Egyptian characters understand the art of hosting a good party.
