Aida, an enslaved Ethiopian princess, is secretly in love with an Egyptian general who’s leading the war against her homeland. But there’s a more personal battle raging. The Egyptian princess whom the regal Aida serves is in love with the same man.
Verdi’s towering masterpiece, Aida, juxtaposes love of country against a deadly love triangle. The action involves Radamès, an Egyptian general; Amneris, the Egyptian princess who loves him; and her handmaiden – the beautiful, enslaved Ethiopian princess, Aida.
