VERDI: Aida
The complete opera plus bonus introduction CD
8.660916-18

This set combines an acclaimed complete recording of Verdi's ever-popular opera Aida, starring Maria Dragoni in the title role, with a fascinating companion CD from the acclaimed Opera Explained series on Naxos Educational. The Opera Explained CD introduces, in words and music, the plot and background of Aida using the principal themes and arias taken from the complete work. Whether listening to the opera for the first time or discovering more about the history and structure of this masterly work, this is an innovative and easy way to deepen an appreciation of Verdi's genius.

Ancient Egypt and the war with Ethiopia is the setting for Verdi's grandest opera. It is the story of the love between Radamès, the Egyptian general, and Aida, an Ethiopian slave, and the jealousy of Amneris, daughter of the King of Egypt. It was written in 1871 to a commission from the Khedive of Egypt to inaugurate the new opera house in Cairo. Musically, the opera is perhaps most famous for the triumphal march ¬°¬•Gloria all' Egitto', which opens the second scene of Act II.
