This week Olga Borodina returns to the Metropolitan Opera, New York for a 7 night run of Aida. The Russian mezzo-soprano returns to the Met stage to perform her signature role Amneris in the grand production of Verdi’s tragedy.
Last seen at the Met in December 2012 also in her title role, The New York Times wrote, “Ms. Borodina’s Amneris was impassioned, volatile… Her astonishingly powerful, almost masculine low notes seem to come out of an instrument different from that of the rest of her range… her final plea for peace was heart wrenching.”
Performance dates: October 30; November 4, 7, 12, 15, 19, 22
Aida opens on October 30. For more information, click here.
