Lyric Stage presents
Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA
Lyric Stage celebrates Black History Month with Elton John and Tim Rice’s Tony Award-Winning AIDA. Based on the Verdi opera of the same name, this epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicles the story of an enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, who 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, but her and Radames’ love for one another become 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 Music by Elton John, Lyrics by Tim Rice, and Book by Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls, and David Henry Hwang, AIDA was originally produced by Walt Disney Theatrical and premiered on Broadway on March 23, 2000, where it ran for 1,852 performances. The Broadway production was nominated for five Tony Awards® and won four, including Best Original Score, and was also named by TIME as one of the top ten theatre productions of the year. The original Broadway cast recording also won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, and one song from the show — “Written in the Stars” as recorded by Elton John and LeAnn Rimes — reached No. 2 in the Billboard US Adult Contemporary music chart.
Thursday Night (2/16) is a preview performance night with $35 tickets available anywhere in the house, except the pit.
Orchestra Pit VIP seats come with a champagne meet & greet with some cast and creatives post-performance.
Aida depicts a conquered and enslaved nation. Themes of race, war and slavery are prevalent in this production.
Join us for cocktails, live performances from AIDA & TARZAN, and a chance to support us in our endeavors to meet our 30th Season Capital Campaign goals.
