In the history of the Salzburg Festival, Verdi’s popular opera Aida was performed only once, in 1979, staged and conducted by Herbert von Karajan. For its return, the Salzburg Festival assembled a superb artistic team, making this production the most sought after and over-booked in the Festival’s history. The supreme cast was led by Anna Netrebko in the title role, directed by Iranian-born New York-based visual artist Shirin Neshat and conducted by the world’s finest Verdi conductor, Riccardo Muti.
