Another Favorite Clip

In honor of Father's Day, I have decided that this weeks Another Favorite Clip should be one of my favorite Father / Daughter duets. This particular version is from Leontyne Price's final Aida at the Metropolitan Opera which also happened to be her farewell to the operatic stage. Although it would seem that she was no longer in her prime as a singer - I understand that the sheer electricity of this performance was palpable. If you get a chance, you should also take a look at the curtain calls from this performance. Incredible.

Here is "Ciel, mio Padre" from Aida with Simon Estes as Amonasro and Leontyne Price as Aida. (PS - the video quality isn't great...)
