Presentation

O patria mia, a setting by Antonio Ghislanzoni, was composed by Guiseppe Verdi in 1871 (F Major) and premiered the same year. This aria is part of Act III of his opera, Aida.

Aida holds a particular place in Verdi’s works, as he decided to retire, after the astounding success the opera met, in 1871. Aida was commissioned for the Opera house in Cairo and later produced in Milan. The hymn of the soldiers celebrating their victory in act II (the triumphant march), became the emblem of the Italian unionists, giving the opera a political tonality that increased its success and popularity even more.

Act I opens on Ramfis, the great priest of the royal Palace in Egypt speaking with Radamès, a captain of the army. He tells him the Nubian army is about to attack Thebes and that the one who would be conducting the Egyptian army has already been chosen. Radamès hopes to be the chosen one so he can obtain the right to marry Aida, a Nubian slave, at the service of the pharaoh’s daughter. Amneris, the pharaoh’s daughter, secretly in love with Radamès enters, followed by Aida. She understands that Aida and Radamès are in love and is filled with jealousy. A servant comes in to announce Radamès has been chosen to lead the army to battle. Left alone, Aida is torn between her loyalty to her father (she is the daughter of the Nubian king) and her love for Radamès.

Act II opens on Amneris awaiting the return of the victorious Radamès. She tells Aida he is dead and is convinced, when she sees her sadness, Aida is in love with him. Her fury is interrupted by the arrival of the victorious army. All are present to honor the soldiers and the King promises to grant any of Radamès’ wishes to thank him for the victory. He asks that the Nubian prisoners be released (the father of Aida, Amonasro is among them). The King accepts and offers him the hand of his daughter Amneris. Aida and Radamès are left desperate while Amonasro vows for revenge.

Act III is set next to the temple of Isis where Amneris is praying before her marriage with Radamès. In the meantime, Aida is awaiting Radamès, who asked her to meet him there. She remembers with nostalgia her native land in her aria: O patria mia.
