Winner of four 2000 Tony® Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA is a musical bursting with contemporary energy that tells of the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love. AIDA is an epic and classic tale of love, loyalty, betrayal, and courage, with an exhilarating Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning score by Elton John and Tim Rice, their first collaboration since writing the music for THE LION KING together. Time Magazine proclaims AIDA "A big, bright show with luscious Elton John melodies."
