THE MET: LIVE IN HD – VERDI’S AIDA
The Grand Teton Music Festival presents Verdi’s Aida, a Live in HD broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera.
Set in ancient Egypt and packed with magnificent choruses, complex ensembles, and elaborate ballets, Aida features an epic backdrop for an intimate love story. Few operas have matched Aida in its exploration of love and duty, and perhaps no other has remained to the present day so unanimously appreciated by audiences and critics alike. In the highlight of the season, soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met Aida, going toe-to-toe with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as Amneris. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the role of Radamès, and Nicola Luisotti takes the podium for the Met’s monumental production.
