Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Italian soprano Maria Dragoni, who sings Aida on this recording, won first prize in the Maria Callas Singing Competition in 1983. Icelandic tenor Kristjan Johannsson sings Radames, a role he has sung at La Scala and the Met. Mezzo Barbara Dever, who sings Amneris, has also appeared in that same role at the Met. The American Record Guide calls her performance "...a fiery, plush-voiced, confident Amneris." Almost half the entire opera is included on this disc.
