Soprano Anna Netrebko and mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili reprise their incendiary partnership as Aida and Amneris—a highlight of the 2018–19 season—with tenor Piotr Beczała completing the greatest love triangle in all of opera as Radamès. Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium for his first Opening Night performance as Met Music Director, leading director Michael Mayer’s grand new staging, which brings ancient Egypt to life with intricate projections and dazzling animations. Later performances feature Latonia Moore and Hibla Gerzmava in the title role, and Ekaterina Semenchuk and Marcelo Álvarez as Amneris and Radamès.
