Met Opera: Aida

  

Aida
by Giuseppe Verdi

 

This grandest of grand operas features an epic backdrop for what is in essence an intimate love story.

Set in ancient Egypt, Aida never loses sight of its three protagonists: Amneris, the proud daughter of the pharaoh; her slave, Aida, who is the princess of the rival kingdom of Ethiopia; and Radamès, the Egyptian warrior they both love.

Few operas have matched Aida in its exploration of the conflict of private emotion and public duty.

Daniele Rustioni conducts.
