How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Much of the music was great, but Radames and Amneris simply were not engaging characters. And their costumes, leather pants and a chest exposing jacket for him and contemporary, glittery, slinky gown for her?! We needed to keep the Egyptian illusion alive, not assault it. Aida, Mereb and Nehabka were fabulous. Beautiful voices and believable acting.
