Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA

2009 Young Artist Production

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Tim Rice

Aida, a Nubian princess, is captured by the Egyptian Captain, Radames, and forced into slavery. Radames, captivated by Aida, presents her as a handmaiden to the Princess Amneris, his future bride. Aida becomes torn between her friendship with Amneris, her undeniable passion for Radames and her steadfast loyalty to her people.
