Aida (Episode #402)

KQED Life: Mon, Jan 28, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Set in ancient Egypt, Giuseppe Verdi's Aida is both a heartbreaking 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. Violeta Urmana stars in the title role of the enslaved Ethiopian princess, with Dolora Zajick as her rival. Johan Botha plays Radames, commander of the Egyptian army. Among the score's highlights is the celebrated Triumphal March. Daniele Gatti conducts the production by Sonja Frisell. Recorded on October 24, 2009.
