Alternative to tonight's Aida from Orange

I recently suggested you to see a brilliant concert of Britten's Requiem [for 5 more months you can see it for free!] That concert was a part of the Festival de Saint Denis that ended a week ago by a truly wonderful performance of the Bach's St Matthew Passion, with John Nelson conducting Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, two choruses [Maîtrise de Paris, and Scola Cantorum Oxford], and a mighty cast: Lucy Crowe, Christine Rice, Werner Güra, Nicholas Phan, Stephen Morscheck, and Matthew Brook

So if you like (or might like) sacred music, then this video is definitely the one to see. Lucy Crowe is always fantastic, and Christine Rice will surprise you in this repertoire (bravissima!) All men are brilliant too.  Check out this link [to see it with no interruptions you're gonna have to register (it's free!)]

Big thanks to Medici.tv

Another viable alternative to tonight's Celeste Aida from Chorégies d'Orange could be... Fascinating Aida

I'm still wiping my tears... 

Otherwise you may wish to stick to Aida on France2 tonite at 9:45 (Paris time). A preview:
