In the Egypt of the Pharoahs there is war with Ethiopia. The Ethiopian King's daughter, Aida, has been captured and is now a slave in the service of the Pharoah's daughter, Amneris. Radames loves Aida but is loved by Amneris. He is appointed general of the Egyptian army and in the second scene of the second act returns in triumph, to be rewarded by the unwelcome hand of Amneris in marriage. Aida's father, Amonasro, has been taken prisoner, his life spared at the intercession of Radames. In the third act he induces his daughter to help him discover the plans of the Egyptian army, which she does in a meeting with Radames, their conversation overheard by Amonasro. Aida and Amonasro take flight but the apparent treachery of Radames is now revealed and he is condemned to death, to the dismay of Amneris.

Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

Who better than the great Luciano Pavarotti to play Ernani, Verdi's Spanish nobleman forced to become an outlaw. His true love is Elvira (Leona Mitchell) who wants only to be with him. But there are other men who desire her. One is Sherrill Milnes, in one of his most memorable roles as Don Carlo, the king who is elected Emperor Charles V.

Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
66 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the opera that made Verdi famous overnight, performed here with the all-star cast that introduced the work to the Met shortly before this broadcast. Thomas Schippers' superb conducting galvanized the Met orchestra and chorus, to say nothing of the magnificent soloists, headed by Cornell MacNeil as the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, who loses his throne to his demented, scheming daughter, played by a blazing Leonie Rysanek. Majestic bass Cesare Siepi is the high priest Zaccaria. The opera is still a rarity and this rendition is legendary
