Concert performance with modified seating plan

Composed in 1846, »Attila« is an early masterpiece by Verdi Giuseppe. In short, dramatic and musically gripping scenes about the conquest of the Roman Empire by Attila, King of the Huns, he creates a panoramic vision of power, love and betrayal. Above all, the story is propelled by the love-hate relationship between Attila, conceived by Verdi as a spectacular bass role, and the Roman noblewoman Odabella, one of the most thrilling parts for coloratura soprano. »Attila« can now be enjoyed in concert performance at the Semperoper with an all-star cast.
