On the banks of the Nile, unfolds the triumphant tale of love that transcends warring nations and brings a country together.  A contemporary musical take on the classic tale of timeless love, this pop-rock musical plays out to a stirring Tony and Grammy Award-winning pop score by Elton John and Tim Rice.

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 proves transcendent of cultural differences and ushers in a time of unprecedented peace between the warring nations.

With an unforgettable score featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA SCHOOL EDITION is a modern crowd pleaser that embraces multicultural casting and exuberant dancing, staging, and singing for large cast sizes.
