Leontyne Price's performance here reminds us why she was the most acclaimed Aida of her time.

And it all comes unraveled when Aida's father (Robert Merrill) forces her to choose between the man she loves and her country. Conductor Thomas Schippers leads this thrilling performance

26 editions published between 1960 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
