The 20th Anniversary Celebration of North East School of the Arts continues with its production of ELTON JOHN & TIM RICE’S AIDA, the striking tale of two star-crossed lovers, based on Giuseppe Verdi’s eponymous opera. CURTIS HOLBROOK, NESA ’99 alum and New York based performer returns to guest choreograph AIDA.
Set on the edge of the Nile River, Aida tells the story of an enslaved Nubian princess who falls in love with her Egyptian captor, Radames. As the forbidden love unfolds, Aida must decide between her desire for the Egyptian captain and her duty to lead the people of Nubia.
Performance dates are February 23, 24, & 25 at 7:30 pm and February 26 at 2:30pm. All performances are at the Lee High School Theater.
