An experience in Authenticity, very realistic scenes
22 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just happened to tune in to the TV showing of this movie tonight, but it listed Sophia Loren as Aida, and it really didn't look like her! Anyways at the end the credits showed Ridderstadt as Aida. By coincidence I've just bought the Sophia L. version and have yet to view it.

The Ridderstadt performance is wonderfully natural to put it mildly, I mean, how close can you get to Nature since wardrobe fittings were at a minimum and left much to be desired in the area of adequate costumes for all. Well that's the version they wished to present.

I found it quirky in a way to hear Verdi's triumphal march music played during the procession of camels bringing the victorious army back from battle.

This opera is one of the finest for music, one could hardly ask for more.
