Aida, Giuseppe Verdi’s grand opera of Ancient Egypt, returns to the Metropolitan Opera. Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska makes her Met debut in the title role of the enslaved Ethiopian princess.

Two Met favorites, tenor Roberto Alagna as the war hero Radamès, and Olga Borodina as the pharaoh's daughter, Amneris, Aida's cunning rival, star in the production.

George Gagnidze sings Amonasro, Aida's cunning father, and Štefan Kocán is the Egyptian priest Ramfis. Met principal conductor Fabio Luisi conducts his first company performances of the opera.
