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.

Description by Image Entertainment:

This magnificent production of Verdi's much-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 same production, Pavarotti heads an exceptional cast all in peak form. Verdi wrote "Aida" in response to a request by the Khedive of Egypt for an opera with authentic Egyptian flavor to open the Cairo Opera House in 1871. The opera's appeal was immediate and lasting, with this production capturing perfectly the imposing grandeur of the land of the pharaohs and the ochre hues of the desert. It is an ideal setting for the magnificent spectacle of the opera, which combines so consummately with the drama of human emotion, played out in Radames's love for the slave girl Aida and the jealousy of Amneris, daughter of the Egyptian king.
