"Aida," the ancient Egyptian love story set to an Elton John pop score, will be staged by Orlando's Clandestine-Arts, the troupe that staged "Sweeney Todd" in January.
"Aida" tells the story of an enslaved Nubian princess; her conflicted Egyptian captor, Radames; and their forbidden love: Radames is supposed to marry Amneris, the pharaoh's imperious daughter, a match championed by his ambitious father.
In the Clandestine-Arts cast are LaDawn Taylor as Aida, Tony Flaherty as Radames, Emily Grainger as Amneris and Brett P. Carson as Pharaoh. Derek Critzer directs.
Showtimes are 8 p.m. June 13-14, 16, 19-22, 26 and 28; 7 p.m. June 27; and 3 p.m. June 29. Performances take place at The Venue, 511 Virginia Drive, Orlando. Tickets are $20, except on June 16 when they are $15. Go to clandestineorlando.com
