About This Show

Verdi’s 1871 opera comes to life in a lively modern pop version by Elton John and Tim Rice. Winner of four 2000 TONY Awards, Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love. Romantic and life-affirming, the show includes a wide variety of ethnic musical styles, with African, Middle Eastern, and Indian sounds. Songs have reggae, motown, and gospel influences, with the mega-hit “Written in the Stars” the most familiar song in the show. Great musical for the whole family.

Woodminster Summer Musicals are performed outdoors in historic Woodminster Amphitheater in beautiful Joaquin Miller Park. Come early and enjoy a picnic with your family, a walk in this hillside park, and the beautiful bay views. As the sun sets, take your seats in the amphitheater and enjoy an evening of music and magic under the stars.
