Rebellion is brewing at Egypt's borders. Aida, an Ethiopian princess and prisoner of war, finds herself in love with her captor, and he with her. When the Egyptian general is chosen to lead a war, Aida is torn between her love for him and for the country he must fight against—her homeland.
The grandest of all operatic masterpieces, Verdi's beloved Aida is infused with gorgeous melodies, bringing ancient Egypt to life through music such as the iconic "Triumphal March." Featuring an all-star cast and stunning sets and costumes by British fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.
