Famous for its “Triumphal March” and soaring arias, Guiseppe Verdi’s “Aida” is an intimate story of a love triangle between enemies during times of war between Egypt and Ethiopia. Graced with some of Verdi’s greatest music, it’s a tour de force of choral scenes, dance, massive sets and vocal power.

Issachah Savage and Karen Slack have made their Austin Opera debuts in this beloved story of ill-fated love and betrayal.

Details: 3 p.m. Sunday. $15-$200. The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. austinopera.org/event/aida
