Riccardo Massi


Giuseppe Verdi: Aida

The romantic and tragic tale of the princess Aida and the military commander Radamès has dazzled audiences since its 1871 Christmas Eve premiere in Cairo. Its popularity has certainly been bolstered by the scale of the productions throughout the years, which features sets that reflect the architectural and engineering wonders of ancient Egypt, epic armies and the arts of antiquity.

In this recording from the Metropolitan Opera House 2017 Riccardo Massi sings Radamès alongside Krassimira Stoyanova’s Aida, Violeta Urmana as Amneris, George Gagnidze as Amonasro and James Morris as Ramfis. Daniele Rustioni conducts.
