In Ancient Egypt, a captive Ethiopian princess, Aida, is torn between her love for the Egyptian commander Radames and her loyalty to her own father and country. The lovers must fend off the schemes of a fiercely jealous Egyptian princess and decide whether true love trumps honor and duty. This 19th-century masterpiece proves that a pyramid may be the greatest love triangle of all.
Starring Latonia Moore, Nadia Krasteva, Antonello Palombi and Lester Lynch. Conducted by Graeme Jenkins.
