Met Opera Winter Highlights 2010: Aida

Guiseppe Verdi's AIDA

Sat July 17 at 11:30am Sun July 18 at 1:00pm (Check local directory for possible extra weekday screening)

Set in ancient Egypt, Aida is both a heart-breaking love story and an epic drama full of spectacular crowd scenes. A cast of powerful voices and a grand production bring the story to life on the Met stage (and on the HD screen). Violeta Urmana stars in the title role of the enslaved Ethiopian princess, with Dolora Zajick as he rival. Johan Botha plays Radamés, commander of the Egyptian army, and Daniele Gatti conducts. Among the score's highlights is the celebrated Triumphal March.
