Aida School Edition

Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA School Edition
The triumphant love story between an Egyptian prince and a slave transcends warring nations and brings a country together.

Adapted from the four-time Tony Award-winning hit, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida School Edition 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.

An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh's daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility she faces as leader of her people. Aida and Radames's 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 School Edition is a modern crowd-pleaser that embraces multicultural casting and exuberant dancing, staging, and singing for large cast sizes. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours and specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers, while carefully maintaining the integrity the original version.
