I agree, Rhadames is one of the most difficult and important roles in Italian Opera. Aida has three of the greatest roles for a soprano, tenor and mezzo. I think the role of Manrico is a bit overrated. Celeste Aida is far more difficult to sing than anything Manrico has to sing, or so it seems to me.

Subject: Re: [OPERA-L] Met «Aida» Next Season

The Nile scene, the judgement scene, the tomb scene? Radames is very important. Corelli and Simionato. This opera is a love triangle. Three!
