“Elaborate Lives” – Aida

Music: Elton John   Lyrics: Tim Rice

Giuseppe Verdi’s tragic opera Aida premiered on this day in 1871 and more than a century later, it was turned into this ravishing musical about lovers from warring countries connected through time and their undying affection.  After Radames, captain of the Egyptian guard, confesses his love for his Nubian captive Aida, she returns his sentiments in this stunning duet.
