Most ingenious. Perhaps the "Misero pane!" section could be better motivated by having Preziosilla dance on beforehand (Zerbinetta-style) and announce, " La cena è pronta."
Now the question should be: how to take the pressure off of Radames, starting with, "Celeste Aida". De Reszke used to cut it! Maybe place the aria as an oxygen deprivation-induced flashback after "Non rivedrò più Aida" in the Tomb Scene?
Cheers - David
