Aida headed to cinemas


Quinn Kelsey is singing a key role in The Metropolit­an Opera’s production of Verdi’s Aida, even though his character doesn’t have much time onstage. The Hawaiian baritone plays the heroine’s father, Amonasro, and says his appearance “definitely puts a nice little wrench into things.” As the Ethiopian king whose people have been conquered by the Egyptians, he persuades his daughter to find out the enemy’s military strategy — even though that means betraying her lover. Aida will be broadcast live in HD to movie theatres worldwide on Saturday.
