The timeless conflict of duty versus desire rises like a pyramid in Verdi's towering, impassioned epic. Aida, a young woman enslaved by the Egyptians, harbors secret feelings for military hero Radamès.

Unbeknownst to her captors, she's also an Ethiopian princess and daughter to their sworn enemy. Torn between love and loyalty to her people, Aida must make an impossible choice--all as the King of Egypt's own daughter Amneris desperately seeks Radamès's affections for herself.
