By Giuseppe Verdi

Librettist: Antonio Ghislanzoni
Sung in Italian

Approximate running time 3 hrs. 40 min.

Verdi’s vision of ancient Egypt is grandly realized with the help of the Met’s unparalleled musical forces—and every one of its stage elevators. Violeta Urmana and Marcello Giordani star as the ill-fated lovers. Stephanie Blythe sings Amneris for the first time at the Met.
