Aida features a pop-rock score written by the legendary Elton John, along with lyrics written by his Lion King collaborator, the Academy, Tony and Grammy Award-winning Tim Rice. This massively crowd-pleasing musical delivers a contemporary spin on the classic tale of forbidden love between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier. As their taboo love grows in the face of cultural differences and the pressures of their warring nations, these lovers must face death itself in order to be together. Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Original Score, Aida is filled with passionate storytelling, exuberant dancing and world-class staging and singing. Catch it in Plano at the Art Centre Theatre.
