The opera Aida takes place in Egypt at the time of the Pharaohs. The Egyptian military leader Radames has fallen madly in love with the slave Aida. But the upcoming war between Egypt and Ethiopia threatens this young love. Adversity also threatens from another side, because the king’s daughter Amneris is also in love with Radames. The Egyptian troops under Radames win the war and so the Egyptian Pharaoh promises his daughter as a reward as a wife. However, the hero in love reveals military secrets to his beloved Aida and thus becomes a traitor. The drama takes its course and the traitor faces death by walling it in. The king’s daughter Amneris is now trying in vain to save her lover. Because Aida also loves Radames and so Radames and Aida choose suicide.
