The talented students from The School of the Performing Arts bring the tale of AIDA to life on Proctors Mainstage for 3 performances only! This timeless love story takes place at the Nile’s edge as the enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, becomes romantically entangled with the Egyptian captain, Radames, who is betrothed to the Pharaoh’s daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love grows deeper, Aida is forced to find balance between her heart’s yearning for Radames, and her responsibility to lead her people.
AIDA, the winner of 4 Tony Awards™ and a Grammy for Best Broadway Score, has music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice. This pop/rock musical from the creators of THE LION KING features a book by Linda Wooverton, Robert Falls, and David Henry Hwang and was originally produced by Disney Theatrical Productions running on Broadway over 4 years. AIDA is based on the opera by Giuseppe Verdi.
