Director: Lauren Scarfe
Choreographer: Thomas Phillips
Musical Director: Kristy Williamson
 
The triumphant love story between an Egyptian prince and a slave transcends warring nations and brings a country together. Based on the Verdi opera this is an updated, modern reworking for a modern theatre audience.
 
Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love.
 
As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility that she faces as the leader of her people. Aida and Radames’ love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
 
With an unforgettable score, featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Aida is a modern crowd-pleaser.
