One of the most acclaimed musicians of his era, Toscanini was a conductor of the "old school" - aristocratic, perfectionistic and something of an autocrat on the podium. After a brief flurry of interest in Fascism in the 1910s, he rapidly became disillusioned with the movement and indeed became a personal rival of Mussolini, repeatedly antagonising him through acts of artistic defiance such as refusals to open concerts with the Fascist anthem Giovinezza.
Eventually he fled Italy for the United States, becoming the first conductor of the newly-formed NBC Symphony Orchestra, with whom he pioneered radio broadcasts and recordings that made him a household name in America until his retirement at the age of 87. He gave the premiere performances of several major works, including Barber's Adagio for Strings and the American premiere of Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony.

This 2006 production from the Zurich Opera is a traditional one by Nicolas Joël in veteran Ezio Frigerio's wonderfully evocative, highly coloured sets. Then Adám Fischer in the pit leads a remarkably strong yet subtle account of the score, which – when played and sung like this – is once more revealed as one of Verdi's greatest masterpieces. Four of the principals easily surpass their DVD rivals. Stemme offers a deeply considered, expressive and superbly sung Aida, one for whom the work's vocal perils do not seem to exist. Add to that acting that goes to the heart of the matter, and one is left breathless in admiration after so many sopranos not truly fitted to the part. Licitra has done nothing better than his Radames here. At last fulfilling his potential, he sings the role with an open-hearted sincerity and a heroic voice up to the part's exigent demands.

One of the legendary moments in Callas's career came in 1950 in Mexico City, when she interpolated a stupendous top E flat at the end of the Triumphal Scene in Act II of Aida. In this recording under Serafin she abided by the score, but still prompted Gramophone to speak of her 'fascinating art and prodigious personality', observing the way she was 'rapt in imaginative intensity in the significance of the words'.

This magnificent recording of Aida, made in Rome, rises to all the musical and dramatic challenges presented by Verdi’s richly-coloured Egyptian epic. Antonio Pappano, once again proving his mastery of Italian opera, moves between sumptuous grandeur and touching intimacy. The responses of the Orchestra e Coro dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia are both immediate and vibrant, while the singers – Anja Harteros, Jonas Kaufmann, Ekaterina Semenchuk, Ludovic Tézier and Erwin Schrott – do justice to every facet of their roles.

Early recordings of Franco Zeffirelli's 2006 production of Verdi's opera which saw Roberto Alagna's high-profile exit during the second performance. Egypt and Ethiopia are at war. Radames is appointed commander of the Egyptian forces by the King, whose daughter, Amneris, loves Radames. It is in fact Amneris' Ethiopian slave Aida whom Radames loves. Ramades wins the war against the Ethiopians, capturing Aida's father Amonasro in the process. On his return to Egypt he faces a choice between marrying Amneris or betraying his country through his love for Aida.

A Memphis, des messagers viennent avertir Pharaon de l'entrée en Egypte de l'armée éthiopienne, dans le but de libérer Aïda, fille de leur roi, retenue en esclavage. Aïda sert Amneris, la fille du pharaon, et toutes deux aiment en secret Radamès, noble guerrier égyptien. Celui-ci aime la douce esclave… Désigné par Isis et Pharaon pour commander l'armée contre les envahisseurs, Radamès rêve de triomphe et de gloire. Aïda souhaite sa victoire mais se reprend, réalisant que ce serait la mort de son peuple. Les Ethiopiens sont écrasés et Amonasro, roi et père d'Aïda, est fait prisonnier. Radamès est fêté en héros. Il demande au pharaon de libérer les prisonniers éthiopiens…

Ad Arborea, regno della grande foresta, un popolo pacifico ha costruito le sue case di legno sugli alberi. L'armonia del regno è interrotta sempre più spesso dalle violente scorrerie dei soldati di Petra alla ricerca di schiavi. Petra è il regno della roccia, di costruzioni imponenti e aggressive, della modernità organizzata e violenta, sulla città incombe il tempio di Satam, il dio della guerra. Quando però Radames, il temerario figlio del generale dell'esercito, s'innamora di Aida, figlia del re di Arborea, tenterà di impedire il conflitto tra i due popoli…

In the spring of 1973, ORTF decided to organise a concert performance of Aida with an international cast (Lavirgen from Spain, Pappas from Greece, the Italians Alberti and Roni, etc.). Sanzogno was felt to be the ideal conductor. The first-night gossip concerned above all the opera's protagonist, a black soprano from America's deep south (Augusta, Georgia, to be precise).
