A grimly uninteresting revival of Franco Zeffirelli's production of Aida (the one that had opened the 2006-2007 season under Riccardo Chailly's baton, when Roberto Alagna was booed off the stage right after the second performance's "Celeste Aida" aria) earlier tonight was roundly booed after his debut performance; Daniel Barenboim and Anna Smirnova (Amneris) were the main targets of the loggionisti's anger.
The AGI/Yahoo! Italia Notizie report (in Italian) is here.
Maria José Siri, as Aida, replaced Violeta Urmana who had pulled out earlier. Walter Fraccaro was Radames.
