Winner of four Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love. With an unforgettable score featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers by Elton John and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), AIDA is a modern crowd-pleaser - an epic tale of loyalty, pride, betrayal, and the love that transcends them all.
