Met Opera Live in HD: Verdi's Aida Dec 15 2012

From a media release:

Met Opera Live in HD
Verdi's AIDA
Saturday, December 15, 2012 - 12:55 pm ET


The Met's unforgettable production of Verdi's ancient Egyptian drama stars Liudmyla Monastyrska as the enslaved Ethiopian princess caught in a love triangle with the heroic Radamès, sung by Roberto Alagna, and the proud Egyptian princess Amneris, sung by Olga Borodina. Fabio Luisi conducts.

U.S. Encore: Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 6:30 pm local time
Canada Encores: Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 12:00 pm local time & Monday, February 25, 2013 at 6:30 pm local time

“Ms. Monastyrska, a native of Kiev, Ukraine, and an established star at that city’s opera house, comes to the Met a fully mature artist. She is gifted with a luscious round soprano that maintains its glow even in the softest notes. Her “O patria mia” was beautifully drawn and colored with darker inflections that added dramatic intensity.”

“The combined fervor of Olga Borodina as Amneris and Fabio Luisi at the helm of a fired-up orchestra made for an electrically charged and energetic performance” (New York Times).

Approximate runtime: 3:54
