Opéra national de Paris 2017/18 : Verdi’s Aida (Salzburg Festival)

Opéra national de Paris 2017/18 : Verdi's Aida (Salzburg Festival) | Beschreibung

RECORDED AT THE SALZBURG FESTIVAL In the history of the Salzburg Festival, Giuseppe Verdi’s popular opera Aida was performed only once, in 1979, staged and conducted by Herbert von Karajan. For its return, the Salzburg Festival assembled a superb artistic team, making this production the most sought after and over-booked in the Festival’s history. The supreme cast was led by Anna Netrebko in the title role, directed by Iranian-born New York based visual artist Shirin Neshat and conducted by the world’s finest Verdi conductor, Riccardo Muti. While Aida is one of the most vulgarized pieces of opera literature, it is at the same time a deep reflection on the hierarchies of power. Being best-known for the sonic splendour of its famous „Triumphal Scene“, it is yet amongst Verdi’s most intimate works when focusing upon the private emotions experienced by the three victims of a tragic love triangle: Radamès, Egypt’s victorious captain of the guard, and the two rivalling women who adore him, the Pharaoh’s daughter Amneris and her Ethiopian slave Aida. Oper in vier Akten (1871) Musik: Giuseppe Verdi 160 Minuten inkl einer Pause
