Aida




Featuring music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, this Disney-produced musical is based on Giuseppe Verdi’s 19th-century opera of the same name.


Story:

Conflict between Egypt and Nubia gives birth to a star-crossed love affair between Aida, the captured princess of Nubia, and Radames, the Egyptian captain who enslaved her people. With love and responsibility at odds, Aida and Radames must decide to follow their hearts or lead their people.
