Verdi: Aida / Franco Corelli, Mary Curtis-Verna, Miriam Pirazzini. Questa (Turin 1956)

Notes & Reviews:

Radames, a military hero in ancient Egypt, is engaged to Amneris, the Pharaoh's daughter, but secretly loves the slave girl Aida instead. Exposed as a traitor, Radames is condemned to die in a "living tomb" underground, where Aida joins him at the end.

MusicWeb International
"[This re-release] will undoubtedly find its primary justification, for most collectors, in the Radames of the young Franco Corelli ... the first complete recording by a now legendary and well-loved artist ... Mary Curtis-Verna offers an idiomatic, sincere, and wholly committed account of the tremendously challenging title role ... Miriam Pirazzini is a wonderful Amneris, rich and vibrant in tone ... Questa provides unobtrusive and thoroughly stylish conducting.
