A powerful opera with breath-taking melodies, Aida brings ancient Egypt to the stage with an evolving love story set against the backdrop of war. The Princess of Ethiopia and an Egyptian General fall in love, just before he is chosen by the king to lead the war with Ethiopia – forcing Aida to choose between her lover or her father and her country.
