One of the best-loved of all grand operas, Verdi’s epic of political and personal drama set in ancient Egypt is brought to life in The Met’s monumental production, captured here for the first time in High Definition Widescreen. This great spectacle, presented by The MET in a ravishing form - uses a huge cast of singers, actors, dancers and horses. Verdi’s Aida includes the well-known mighty Triumphal March.
Lithuanian soprano Violeta Urmana in the title role of the princess-turned-slave girl, leads an outstanding international cast including South African tenor Johan Botha as her lover and American mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick
as her jealous rival, the princess Amneris.
Italian Maestro Daniele Gatti brings all his operatic experience to Verdi's great score.
