To celebrate the bicentennial of Giuseppe Verdi's birth, La Fura dels Baus opens the "Centanario Festival 2013" of the Arena di Verona. Carlus Padrissa and Alex Olle sign a brillant new version of Aida.

Aida is the most popular opera of Verona Festival, the only one performed every year, 17000 spectators enjoy the show every evening. This new production is designed by La Fura dels Baus. They transform the arena into a huge desert, creating mechanical animals and manufacture a solar power plant. They use their experience in leading large-scale shows and opera to create the Aida of the 21st century splendidly conducted by a young talented conductor, Omer Meir Wellber.

The Egyptians have captured and enslaved Aida, an Ethiopian princess. An Egyptian military commander, Radames, struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the Pharaoh. To complicate the story further, the Pharaoh's daughter Amneris is in love with Radames, although he does not return her feelings.
