Every Story is a Love Story: Read Aida for FREE

20 years ago today, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida opened on Broadway, starring Heather Headley, Adam Pascal, and Sherie Rene Scott. Set to a powerful score by The Lion King's Elton John and Tim Rice, Aida is refreshing reinterpretation of the classic opera that tells an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal.

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 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.

Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical and Best Original Score, Aida ran for 1,852 performances when it took its final bow. In celebration of this adored love story, we invite you to listen to the original Broadway cast album and read the script for free!
