Met Live in HD: Aida

Music Academy of the West

Verdi’s Aida

In what should be a highlight of the new season, soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met Aida, going toe-to-toe with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as Amneris. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko is Radamès, and Nicola Luisotti takes the podium for the Met’s monumental production. 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 explores the conflict of private emotion and public duty, and perhaps no other opera has remained to the present day so unanimously appreciated by audiences and critics alike.

estimated run time 3 hours, 26 minutes
