Description by Naxos:
This production of Aida constitutes a remarkable project, with Franco Zeffirelli, legendary film and opera director/producer, staging the ancient Egyptian opera in Verdi's home town.
The young singers, all in their mid-twenties, were selected by the legendary tenor Carlo Bergonzi, who tutored them. The result is truly astonishing, not just because they master the tremendously difficult pieces with ease but because they fill these pieces with a vitality and passion too.
The detailed documentary film conveys additional insights into how the production came about.
