Live Opera in Basel "Aida on the Rhine" now!

Television SF1 is transmitting live tonight from 20:05 to 21:30 & 21:50 to 23:10
Verdi's Opera Aida. Looks like it comes with sub titles too on page 777

Much of it will be fimed on barges and bridges on the River Rhine, some will be in
Hotels etc. A massive project for a small company!
The opera story is from Egypt. The bridges replace the pyramids, and the Rhine
replaces the Nile.

It is also being shown on 3Sat and HD Swiss channels.

I love this music! I saw it years ago in the Avenches arena.

I've just come back from town where I watched some of the filming. All very impressive. Now looking forward to watching the repeat on SF info in the next days to see the TV version
