A little story of an Ethiopian slave and the fortunes of war,
This review is from: Verdi: Aida [DVD]  (DVD)
I have to confess I have not watched much of Verdi so I do not have enough knowledge to compare and contrast. I also was watching sub titles the firt time through. Looks like I will have to find a different production and hope it is just not Giuseppe Verdi I find band. I know this 1985 but it has a 60's feel.
This presentation seems a bit bland. But Stefania Toczyska made a splendid Amneris and kept you in your seat wanting more.
Do not let me discourage you from watching as everyone needs to know the story and especially find where they extracted the Act 2, Scene 2: ....Triumphal March from.
"Aida" an Arabic female name meaning "visitor"
