An encore performance of Verdiâs Aida will be shown in cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in all time zones.

Olga Borodina is her rival, Amneris, daughter of the Pharaoh, and George Gagnidze sings Aidaâs father, Amonasro, the King of Ethiopia. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
