At the heart of the plot is an impossible choice between love and patriotic duty: a captive Ethiopian princess and an Egyptian soldier betray their people and defy a powerful rival, uniting to the death. Marked by the contrast between an over-the-top spectacle and the transition to a dramaturgy of intimacy, Verdi's score succeeds in distinguishing the inner drama of its protagonists from the imposing historical framework. The work brings together the themes dear to the composer: nostalgia for the lost homeland, deliverance through death, the opposition between a disappointing present and an idealised elsewhere, the weight of religious and political powers as regulating elements in a world conceived as a trap. For her debut at the Opéra national de Paris, Dutch director Lotte de Beer has chosen to take a critical look at the European representation of colonised peoples, encouraging us to rethink our relationship with the aesthetic productions of the past and present.
