NEW PRODUCTION After the two traditional Aidas staged by Zeffirelli in the last decade at La Scala, the sublime archaeological fable without a happy ending is presented here by two great masters: Peter Stein, the great German director, who promised “eine ganz intime Aida”, a totally intimate Aida, and conductor Zubin Mehta.
In this archive recording of the quintessential lyric opera, captured live in 2015, the luminous American soprano Kristin Lewis stars as the doomed Ethiopian princess, joined by acclaimed Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as her rival Amneris.
