Aida - Verdi (1956 staging of Egyptian love opera, starring Italian soprano Stella 2 CDs)

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Known as one of the finest "spinto" sopranos of the Fifties and Sixties, Antonietta Stella (b.1929) was the perfect choice to play the titular Aida, the Ethiopian Princess in Giuseppe Verdi's operatic work. Stella, at her peak, possessed a voice of great Italian warmth, the legato was melting and her pianissimo singing was beautiful.

Playing opposite Stella, as her lover Radames, is the famous Italian tenor Giuseppe di Stefano (1921-2008), who was at the top of his profession for almost fifty years, until his retirement in the Early Nineties. The conductor of The Orchestra & Coro del Teatro alla Scala is Antonino Votto, in a December 1956 staging.

The synopsis concerns a war in the time of the pharaohs, between Egypt and Ethiopia. Aida, the Ethiopian princess, is captured by the Egyptian army, but then falls in love with Radames, an Egyptian general. The audience, or listener, follows Aida's dilemma between her love for Radames, and her love for her homeland, especially when the Egyptian general is tasked with leading a military offensive against the Ethiopians ...
