Summary:
This was one of the most emotional evenings in Met history--the night Leontyne Price bid farewell to opera. Aida is the role that inspired audiences around the world to acclaim her as the greatest Verdi soprano of her time. And this telecast shows why: the famous soaring phrases that seemed to never end, the shimmering top to her lustrous voice, undimmed by the years. But most of all, there is the ennobling heart and soul Price lavished on every performance--captured here forever. With James Levine conducting the Met orchestra, chorus, and ballet.

Opening credits
Preludio
Si, corre voce che l'Etiope ardisca
Se quel guerrier io fossi! Celeste Aida
Quale insolita gioia nel tuo sguardo!
Vieni, o diletta appressati
Alta cagion v'aduna
Su! del Nilo al sacro lido
Ritorna vincitor!
Possente, possente Fthà
Danza scara delle Sacerdotesse (Sacred dance of the priestesses)
Mortal, diletto ai Numi,
Chi mai fra gli inni e i plausi
Danza di piccoli schiavi mori (Dance of the young Moorish slaves)
Fu la sorte dell'armi a' tuoi funesta
Su! del Nilo al sacro lido
Gloria all'Egitto
Marcia trionfale (Triumphal march)
Ballabile/Ballet
Vieni, o guerriero vindice
Salvator della patria
Che veggo! Egli? Mio padre!
O Re: pei sacri Numi
Gloria all'Egitto
O tu che sei d'Osiride
Qui Radamès verrà! O patria mia
Ciel! mio padre! Rivedrai le foreste imbalsamate
Pur ti riveggo, mia dolce Aida
Fuggiam gli ardori inospiti
Aida! Tu non m'ami
L'aborrita rivale a me sfuggia
Già i sacerdoti adunansi
Ohimè! morir mi sento!
Radamès! Radamès! Radamès! Tu rivelasti
La fatal pietra sovra me si chiuse
Immenso Fthà
O terra, addio
