Ignite Theatre to Present AIDA at Aurora Fox Theatre, 12/28-1/19
Aida, the Tony Award winning musical based on the Verdi opera, is the story of the unlikely love triangle between Amneris, the Pharo's daughter, Radames, captain of the Egyptian army and Aida, an enslaved Nubian princess. As a forbidden love blossoms between Aida and Radames, the young lovers are between love, responsibility or death. A timeless star crossed love story that sets a shining example of true devotion that transcends the cultural differences of race and, ultimately, time itself.
