Tune of the Day: Celeste Aida

from Giuseppe Verdi's opera “Aida”

“Celeste Aida” (“Heavenly Aida”) is a famous romanza (i.e. a simple lyrical piece) from Giuseppe Verdi's opera Aida, which is set in ancient Egypt. It is sung by Radamès, a young Egyptian warrior who wishes to be chosen as a Commander of the Egyptian army. He dreams of gaining victory on the battle field for Aida, the Ethiopian slave girl with whom he is secretly in love.
