Met Opera: Aida
Wednesday, May 10, 2023 @ 7:30pm – 11:30pm (EDT)
Metropolitan Opera House, New York, NY, United States
The mighty walls and towering monuments of ancient Egypt once again fill the Met stage, as Verdi's great spectacle returns. Rising soprano Michelle Bradley stars in the title role, a captive Ethiopian princess torn between love and country. Mezzo-sopranos Anita Rachvelishvili and Olesya Petrova alternate as Aida's implacable Egyptian counterpart Amneris, with tenors Brian Jagde and Marcelo Álvarez as the warrior Radamès, the object of both of their affections. Baritones George Gagnidze, Quinn Kelsey, and Luca Salsi portray Aida's father, Amonasro, and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn is the iron-fisted priest Ramfis. Maestro Paolo Carignani conducts.
