Aida music video

By Amy MacKenzie

And the only place you can watch it is right here on Classic FM!

No, it's not the new track from Beyoncé or Taylor Swift. In fact, it's not even pop music.

This fabulous music video is the latest release from the rising star soprano Aida Garifullina with a sensational performance of 'Je Veux Vivre' from Charles Gounod's Roméo et Juliette.

Described as "one of the most exciting opera divas of today and tomorrow", Aida performs what is considered to be one of the most dazzling – but tricky – arias for the soprano voice, Aida's music video sets the scene wonderfully as she documents her arrival at the renowned Vienna State Opera through the dressing room to her entrance on stage. 

Aida's album is out tomorrow 3rd February and you can buy it here.
