Met Opera: Aida

Met Opera: Aida

Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko makes her Met role debut as Aida in this thirtieth anniversary revival of Sonja Frisell's production. Verdi's drama is set in Ancient Egype, where the Ethiopian Aida lives a life of slavery. She and the Egyptian warrior Radamès, sung by tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko, have fallen in love, although the princess Amneris - mezzo soprano Anita Rachvelishvili - is an implacable rival for Radamès' affections. Then, when Radamès goes into battle, he unwittingly captures Aida's father as a prisoner of war. As Aida and Radamès face impossible choices between patriotism, passion and paternal bonds, the stage is set for tragedy. With heart-stopping music and spectacular set pieces, including the famous Trimphal March, Verdi's towering masterpiece opens the new Live in HD season with a bang.
