Winner of four 2000 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. An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh’s daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility she faces as 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.

“Aida” was well-received by both the reviewer and the audiences who had the oportunity to witness this tremendous production. The principal parts were understudied to give more actors an opportunity to participate. Run dates for the understudies were July 18 and 25. The reviewer stated this show was for all ages and it should go on one’s list to do in July.
