After being nudged by a friend to attend Aida, I did so. Oh my gosh! I've since thanked him profusely. This was a wonderful experience, both in the visual presentation and the musical production. Such voices are surely difficult to match. Not anticipating the subtitles provided, I was thrilled to find them as they made the actions on stage so clear and meaningful. Obviously, I'm not qualified to make comparisons as this was my first operatic experience. I do know that it won't be my last.
