In what should be a highlight of the new season, soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met Aida, going toe-to-toe with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as Amneris. Later in the season, a second star-studded cast takes over, with Sondra Radvanovsky and Olesya Petrova as the leading ladies. Tenors Aleksandrs Antonenko, Yonghoon Lee, and Jorge de León alternate as Radamès, and Nicola Luisotti and Plácido Domingo take the podium for the Met’s monumental production.
