An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh's daughter, Amneris.
Featuring unforgettable ballads and brilliant choral numbers - the impressive score is entertainment like no other.

Why did Glenaeon choose this musical for the yr 10 cohort?
This Musical was chosen for many reasons. Most importantly it provides the cohort the opportunity to showcase their exceptional artistic abilities. The creative team have been impressed by both their auditions and initial rehearsals so far in terms of what the students are bringing to the production. Additionally, ‘Aida – School’s Edition’ weaves a complex engaging narrative that has some historical significance, which is a move away from the fantastical style of the musical last year, bringing further variety to our repertoire and wonderful storytelling potential.
How long have Yr 10 been working on this project?
We have been working on this project since the Main Lesson for this cohort in Term 4 last year. We have ongoing rehearsals every Monday after school and Sunday until the incursion begins in Week 8.
