[Although the formal first night of the Paris season was not until two nights later on 5/21/1910, this was a complete performance of Aida before an invited audience that filled the Théatre du Chatelet. The performance was reported on and reviewed by newspapers in Paris and New York. Among the guests were Premier Briand, numerous ambassadors, M. Clemenceau, the playwrights Edmond Rostand and Gabriel d'Annunzio, and Mr. and Mrs. Jean de Reszke.]

[Because it was a rehearsal, this performance is not included in statistics for Aida.]
