What a great show! If you're in the area, I highly recommend going to see Aida at the Opera.
The music was good - not great - but the costumes and sets by Zandra Rhodes were spectacular. Gold lame hoop skirts on shirtless men, pleats, lotus patterns, African prints....wow. And for no less than 200 extras making up the chorus, soldiers, ladies in waiting, acrobats and priests in addition to the main performers. Add in a giant teal silk elephant and gold confetti showers...that's a pretty awesome night out.
I'm think that my Halloween party might need to have an Egyptian theme now...what do you think?
