Notes & Reviews:

"'Aida' works very well in Edmund Tracey's careful English translation. It's important to know what they're saying, and in this performance, the great duets especially are vivid and powerful. The set pieces don't come off badly either, and there's no lack of grandeur. Parry's chorus and orchestra are satisfyingly big and loud, and Chandos's characteristically wide sound stage adds a touch of cinematic spaciousness." - Lucano, ARG

BBC Music Magazine
devotees of Peter Moores's Opera in English project will not want to miss this, surely one of the best in the series to date

Penguin Guide
Central to the Chandos set's success is the formidable assumption of the title role by Jane Eaglen...The voice is rich and warm, better focused that it often has been, with fearless attack above the stave, and fine poise in reflective moments...[Plowright makes] a suitably vehement and fruity Amneris
