Surging brilliantly beyond the confines of the stage - its glorious arias sung by the great operatic voices of our age - its powerful drama
Read more portrayed by a brilliant cast...This famous film was launched like a live spectacle by impresario Sol Hurok and was promoted as the first opera film in color. Sophia Loren stars as Aida with her singing dubbed by Renata Tebaldi.

The film was a major production with top La Scala and Rome Opera singers and grandiose sets.
