Dall'opera in 4 atti (1871) di G. Verdi e A. Ghislanzoni. Trionfatore sugli etiopi, Radames ottiene dal faraone la liberazione della schiava Aida di cui è innamorato e di suo padre Amonasro, re degli etiopi. Costretta dal padre, Aida induce Radames a rivelare il segreto delle future mosse dell'esercito egizio. Per intervento di Amneris, figlia del faraone, Radames scopre il tranello, si costituisce e viene condannato per tradimento a essere sepolto vivo. Aida si cela nella tomba e muore con lui. 

Based on the opera in four acts by Giuseppi Verdi (1871).  Victorious over the Ethiopians, Radames gets the Pharoah to free the slave Aida, loved by both Radames and her father Amonasro, king of Ethiopia.  Pressured by her father, Aida gets Radames to betray the plans of an upcoming campaign against the Ethiopians by the Egyptian army.  Pharoah's daughter Amneris discovers the betrayal and for his crimes, Radames is convicted of treason and sentenced to be buried alive.  Aida hides in the tomb before the execution is carried out and shares Radames' fate.
