A Song for Kingdoms -Based on the opera "Aida"-

The setting is Egypt 4,500 years ago. Priests are about to utter the name of the new general, so that the country can prevail in its frequent wars with Ethiopia. And that officer's name is...

The young Egyptian warrior Radames is filled with anticipation of being appointed Commander. He decides that the day he defeats Ethiopia will be the time he starts courting Aida, whom he has loved in secret. During the last war, Radames saved the life of an Ethiopian Princess, Aida, who is now a prisoner of Egypt. Aida is also attracted to the strong and hearty Radames, despite being aware he is an enemy of her homeland. Yet she, a prisoner, is unable to convey her thoughts to him. Radames promises Aida, who has wistful memories of her homeland, that he will make sure Ethiopia is liberated once the war is over. Yet she retorts, "What would it mean to you if Ethiopia were to be liberated?" Meanwhile, the Princess of Egypt, Amneris, appears atop a towering stone wall, smiling seductively and accompanied by a group of court ladies. She is also love with the heroic warrior Radames, yet from the way he looks at Aida, she is starting to suspect the two are in a relationship. Aida is trembling, caught within a confined space between love and her homeland, while Amneris is engulfed in suspicion, and Radames is preparing to attack Ethiopia to achieve an end to the war. Like the current of the great River Nile, a surge of emotions among these three will before long wash away all manner of things.
