One of Giuseppe Verdi’s many mas­ter­pieces, Aida tells the story of an Ethiopian princess of the Old King­dom, cap­tured and en­slaved by the Egyp­tians. The con­flict­ing de­mands of loy­alty, duty and the heart are en­coun­tered as she and an Egyp­tian mil­i­tary com­man­der fall hope­lessly in love, telling its in­ti­mate tale in a grand set­ting of elab­o­rate chore­og­ra­phy and com­plex en­sem­bles. Ex­pected to be a high­light of the new sea­son, so­prano Anna Ne­tre­bko will make her de­but ap­pear­ance as a Met Aida along­side mezzo-so­prano, Anita Rachvel­ishvili, as Am­neris. met­
