Summary:
Verdi's Aida has come to symbolize grand opera, and with such a legendary cast as the one assembled for this performance it's easy to see why. With her sumptuous sound, Zinka Milanov embodied Aida for a generation of opera-lovers, and her distinctive voice filled the theater, and listeners' hearts, with every facet of the character's conflicting emotions. With the great Leonard Warren as her father, Amonasro, their monumental clash, then reconciliation, is a performance for the ages. Fedora Barbieri is Amneris, Aida's rival for the love of the mighty warrior Radamès (Kurt Baum), and Jerome Hines is the high priest Ramfis.

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
Nume custode e vindice
Chi mai fra gl'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 e ballabile/Triumphal march
Vieni, o guerriero vindice
Salvator della patria, io ti saluto
Che veggo! Egli? Mio padre!
O Re: pei sacri Numi
Gloria all'Egitto
Introduction: O tu che sei d'Osiride madre immortale
Qui Radamès verrà! O patria mia
Ciel! mio padre! Rivedrai le foreste imbalsamate
Padre! a costoro
schiava
non sono
Pur ti riveggo, mia dolce Aida
Fuggiam gli ardori inospiti
Ma, dimmi
L'aborrita rivale a me sfuggia
Già i sacerdoti adunansi
Misero appien mi festi
Ohimè! moire mi sento!
Radamès! Radamès! Radamès! Tu rivelasti
La fatal pietra sovra me si chiuse
Vedi? Di morte l'angelo radiante a noi s'appressa
O terra, addio.
