Join us for this brand new production of Verdi's awe-inspiring masterpiece – we're giving away five pairs of tickets for our Grand Tier box at the Royal Albert Hall. This experience includes a champagne reception with canapes, a show programme and a tour of the Albert Hall itself.

The prize tickets are for the performance on Saturday 3 March 2012 at 7.30pm.

The epic production explores the devastating consequences of a classic love triangle between Aida, the Ethiopian slave girl, Amneris, the King's daughter, and Radames, Captain of the Guard. Culminating with the final entombment as the opera draws to its tragic close, this intense drama gave Verdi the perfect opportunity to compose some of his most poignant arias and powerful music. Staged in the round, the action will unfold in the very heart of the Hall.

An international cast will be accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the opera will be sung in Italian with English subtitles.

The closing date for entries is 17 February 2012. Terms and conditions apply.
