The music and the voices were spectacular. I was really really impressed. The three leads were not only talented actors - they were all so beautiful!

The cast did quite a bit with a very small space - every seat in the house was a great seat....continued

Great cast. The leads have strong voices and overall the play was enjoyable but the air was not working at the theater and that kind of took away from my pleasure.

More Information


In its first Chicago production since the national tour, Bailiwick Chicago’s newly envisioned production of Elton John and Tim Rice’s _Aida _features stunning choreography by the modern dance company Deeply Rooted Dance Theater, a six-piece band, and a cast of 20 talented actors, singers, and dancers. _Aida _ tells the story of a high-ranking Egyptian soldier, engaged to the Pharaoh’s daughter and next in line for the throne, who falls in love with the Nubian slave Aida. When he discovers that she is the daughter of the King of Nubia, each is forced to choose between love for country and love for each other. With a driving pop-rock score by Elton John, the story challenges audiences to consider the question: “What would you sacrifice for eternal love?”
