'Very Good interpretation'
This is the comment I have been receiving from those who saw this Opera, live.
The DVD is not different.

As far as I am concerned it has been able to provide proper appreciation of the creative work of such dramatic presentations set to music.
Aida, Opera of grandiose libretto and refined orchestra (The Grand March and Ballet), was supposed to see its premier in Cairo in 1869.
Ismail Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt, was the father eternal of the Grand Opera-House of Cairo.

The Pasha aimed at excelling Western cultures as art paramour and he asked Verdi to write an opera to be a masterpiece for posterity and take perpetual patriotic touches on the opening of the Cairo Opera House in 1869. (Not the opening of the Suez Canal as many believe so)
Eventually it had premiered in December 1871 due to the Franco-Prussian war, which created difficulties to transport the costumes and related paraphernalia from Paris to Egypt. The Acts scenes are at Memphis, the capital of ancient Egypt, and require large number of players, Priests, Egyptian populace, Ethiopians prisoners of war, slaves, guards and soldiers and a spacious stage.

I wonder how the people in charge of any theatre should be able to provide the necessary accommodations...
