The objective of Opera Classics Library is to unlock operas mysteries for the general audience, and enlighten and educate. Understanding and knowledge are the master keys to enhance enjoyment and appreciation of this great art form.After the premier of Verdis 26th opera, Aida, the venerable composer commented quite humorously, Aida is certainly not one of my worst operas. Aida is a grand opera spectacle achieved through a magnificent combination of a large cast that includes six major singing roles, a huge chorus and orchestra, three ballets, exotic scenery, and oriental ambience. But more importantly, Aida is a story about profound human passions, towering emotions, and passions of individuals as they face conflicts and tensions of love, honor, and duty.
