I love it.
The pathos of this opera, especially at the end, is powerfully represented in this video. I love it.
More Supers than you can imagine
Very nice recording. Wish I liked the opera better, but it was the definitive Triumphal March. I think they cast everybody on the streets of New York at the time. This was one instance in which the set got applause.
Aida is a good addition to my opera colections
It was a stunning performance and I am so glad to have this DVD
I saw this performance on the simulcast with PBS and WPLN in 1989. It was a stunning performance and I am so glad to have this DVD.
Smash hit for over 100 years!
Amazing production. What you would expect from the MET

Disconnect telephone and doorbell, sit back and be transported to ancient times in a symphony of splendid decors and music, sung by performers who know how to tear your heart out with perfect renderings of Verdi’s well known, but always moving, melodies.
A true spectacle!

This production is surely the most lavish AIDA ever recorded, should be the cornerstone of any DVD opera collection. From my high horse, I can only fault the soft video image in 4:3 (only ’cause the newer, particularly the European productions are in 16:9 HD & 5.1 audio) and an above average PCM stereo audio mix – that’s just quibbling. DO NOT HESITATE _ BUY!!!
