On Thursday, April 8 through Sunday April 11, Metro Christian Academy Fine Arts students will perform “Aida” in the Metro Performing Arts Auditorium. The production will feature first though twelfth grade students and is held in conjunction with the visual arts “Spring Art Show”.
Advance ticket sales began Monday, March 22 and will be available at the door. All seats are general admission and cost $8.00 for adults or $5.00 for students and senior citizens. Admission to the “Spring Art Show” is free.
Aida is based on the Verdi opera of the same name and features rock music written by Elton John and Tim Rice. The story involves the love triangle between the Aida, an Ethiopian princess brought into Egyptian slavery, Radames, an Egyptian military officer, and Amneris, the Pharaoh’s daughter.
