Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko makes her Met role debut as Aida in this thirtieth-anniversary revival of Sonja Frisell’s production.
Verdi’s drama is set in Ancient Egypt, where the Ethiopian Aida lives a life of slavery. She and Egyptian warrior Radamèssung by Aleksandrs Antonenko have fallen in love, although rincess Amnerismezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishviliis an implacable rival for Radamès’s affections.
Then, when Radamès goes into battle, he unwittingly captures Aida’s father as a prisoner of war. As Aida and Radamès face impossible choices between patriotism, passion and paternal bonds, the stage is set for tragedy. With heart-stopping music and spectacular set pieces, including the famous Triumphal March.
