The opera Attila, by Guiseppe Verdi, opens this Friday at the Teatro Avenida on Avenida de Mayo. The opera was first performed in Buenos Aires on September 23rd, 1853, only six years after it had opened in Venice. It took another hundred years before the opera returned to the city, in 1966. Centering on the life of Attila, king of the Huns, the opera is a good introduction to Verdi as it contains most of his signature styles. According to the website of Buenos Aires Lírica, the company performing the opera, the production runs until the 26th of July and tickets start at 40 pesos and run to 180, depending on how well you want to be able to see the face of Attila the fearsome Hun.
