Metropolitan Opera: Aida

Triumphal Scene_0860-X2

Grand opera at its grandest: the splendors of ancient Egypt return to the stage of the Met. Verdi’s mythic love triangle features Liudmyla Monastyrska, Tamara Wilson, and Oksana Dyka sharing the title role, with Olga Borodina and Violeta Urmana as Amneris and Marcello Giordani and Marco Berti singing Radamès. Marco Armiliato and Plácido Domingo share conducting duties. Saturday at 1pm on Classical 90.5.

Liudmyla Monastyrska sings Aida

Liudmyla Monastyrska made her debut last month as Aida, which the New York Times called a “triumphant house debut.” You can hear her tomorrow at 1pm on the live, Metropolitan Opera Saturday Matinee broadcast.
