Met Opera ENCORE: Verdi's AIDA

High Definition Encore Broadcast

In what should be a highlight of the new season, soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met Aida, with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as her formidable rival Amneris. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko is the warrior Radamès, and Nicola Luisotti takes the podium for the Met’s monumental production.

Aida premiered at the Opera House in Cairo, in 1871. This grandest of grand operas features an epic backdrop for what is in essence an intimate love story. Set in ancient Egypt and packed with magnificent choruses, complex ensembles, and elaborate ballets, Aida never loses sight of its three protagonists. Few operas have matched Aida in its exploration of the conflict of private emotion and public duty, and perhaps no other has remained to the present day so unanimously appreciated by audiences and critics alike.

Sung in Italian with Met titles in English

Estimated Run Time: 3 hrs 36 mins, including two 30-min. intermissions
