Product Description:

This 1985 production of Verdi's operatic masterpiece as marked the Pavarotti's (long-awaited) first Italian performance in the role of Ramades. Staged in the magnificently opulent setting of La Scala, this AIDA gets the lush treatment it deserves. The story of a pharoah's love for a slave in the exotic and Biblical setting of Ancient Egypt, AIDA is arguably one of the most adored operas ever written.

Product Description:

This magnificent production of Verdi's most-loved masterpiece was a triumphant success when it opened at La Scala in December 1985 and Luciano Pavarotti's long-awaited performance as Radames - his first in Italy - was greeted with rapturous applause. In this live recording of that production, Pavarotti heads an exceptional cast with Ghena Dimitrova, Maria Chiara, Nicolai Ghiaurov and Juan Pons all in peak form. Lorin Maazel's reading of the score shows a rare understanding of Verdi"s music.
