Straight from collaborating on Disney's The Lion King
, Elton John and Tim Rice went on to their next success, Aida
. Adapted from Verdi's immortal opera of the same name, Aida
tells a tale of forbidden love in a time of war, transporting audiences back to the Land of the Pharaohs, where an Egyptian captain falls for an enslaved Nubian princess, forcing the young lovers to choose between love and death. This ancient tragedy is infused with an eclectic, contemporary score -- as in The Lion King
, John writes songs in a variety of styles, from rock ballads to reggae, all paired with Rice's incisive lyrics. The winner of four Tony Awards during its original Broadway run, the power and passion of Aida
now comes to Denver. While you're there, don't miss Exhibition Aida, an interactive exhibit featuring Egyptian artifacts borrowed from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, which shares the story and time of Aida
