Read more about the opera Aïda

Once it reached these shores, Aïda quickly became a popular favourite in Britain, appearing in the schedules of several touring companies. BNOC seem to have been able to field varied casts using mainly British singers (the American Rachel Morton being a notable exception).

This cast is from a programme in the Edinburgh Room of Edinburgh City Library. The soprano singing the off-stage Priestess in Act 2 is not identified.
