An encore performance of Verdi's Aida will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, July 29, at 7:00 p.m. in all time zones.
The Met's spectacular production of Verdi's Egyptian epic captures both the grandeur and the intimacy of this powerful tale of love and politics. Liudmyla Monastyrska is Aida, the enslaved Ethiopian princess in love with the Egyptian warrior Radamès, sung by Roberto Alagna. Olga Borodina is her rival, Amneris, daughter of the Pharaoh, and George Gagnidze sings Aida's father, Amonasro, the King of Ethiopia. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
