WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, Elton John & Tim Rice's AIDA is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and betrayal, chronicling a love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country; Amneris, an Egyptian princess; and Radames, the soldier they both love. Aida finds her heart entangled with Radames, who is betrothed to the Pharoah's daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility that she faces as the leader of her people. Aida and Radames's love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
