Lavish design but plodding, with poor acoustics,
This review is from: Aida: Live at the Royal Albert Hall [DVD] (DVD)
Princess Amneris shone in this lavish production -- which is more than can be said of most other characters, or the musical rendering.. The King lacked royal stature, and likewise the High Priest lacked credibility..
The sole decent musical rendering was of the triumphal march -- AFTER the end of the opera.
The Victorian lady (archaeologlist) hardly fitted with the opera.
