“WNO to Open New Season with AIDA” (BroadwayWorld)
Role: Amonasro, King of Ethopia
Aida, an Ethiopian princess, is captured and brought into slavery in Egypt. A military commander, Radamès, struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the Pharaoh. To complicate the story further, Radamès is loved by the Pharaoh’s daughter Amneris, although he does not return her feelings. Amonasro, the king of Ethopia, is a master strategist. What better way to learn how to defeat your enemy, than by allowing yourself to get captured and viewing the weaknesses of your enemy from close range.
