Aida - Verdi (Ethiopian princess a prisoner in Egypt, with a yearning love 2 CDs)

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring the Orchestra & Chorus of the Theatre of Milan, transported to the National Theatre of Munich, Germany, in a 1972 staging conducted by Claudio Abbado. The titular Aida is played by soprano Martina Arroyo ; Radames by legendary tenor Placido Domingo ; Amneris by mezzo-soprano Fiorenza Cossotto ; Amonasro by baritone Piero Cappuccilli)

Giuseppe Verdi's (1813-1901) opera "Aida", concerns a love triangle, between the titular Aida - an Ethiopian princess being held prisoner in Egypt - ; the Egyptian general Radames, a man for whom Aida has grown to love ; and the Egyptian King's daughter, Amneris, who also loves Radames.
The general Radames is appointed by Amneris' father, to lead a further military campaign against Ethiopia. This leads Aida to question her feelings for Radames, compared to her love for her home nation.

However, the war is won by Egypt, and Radames returns victorious, with the King bestowing daughter Amneris as Radames' bride. Both Radames and Aida feel a mixture of confusion and sorrow, that their secret love has to end this way ... However, Aida's father, Ethiopian king Amonasro, is also, now, being held prisoner in Egypt, and compels his daughter to betray military secrets that Radames has revealed to her.

Aida, again in two hearts, tries to elope with Radames, while Amneris tries to get her revenge, by having the pair arrested. But Aida and her father escape... Then, Amneris offers Radames an escape from the death penalty (for leaking military secrets), if he will marry her. He refuses, and is buried alive. But, he finds Aida in the open grave with him. She has opted to die with him. Together they are united in love and death.
