Fiddlehead Theatre Presents "AIDA" at the Strand Theatre
Oct 17-26, 2014

Fiddlehead Theatre is proud to present AIDA, an Elton John and Tim Rice musical about the timelessness of love and its ability to take us - all of us - down surprising paths as we explore our commitments to each other. 

True devotion, in the face of obscuring differences in culture, ultimately transcends these differences and heralds a time of prosperity and peace.  October 17-26, 2014 at the historic Strand Theatre in Uphams Corner.

In collaboration with Aids Action Committee, Fiddlehead Theater Company is proud to present AIDA with 5% of every ticket sold going to the Aids Action Committee.

Elton John and Time Rice have created a modern Romeo and Juliet story.  And what else?  Love turns everything upside down.  In the intensity of their relationship, the couple, an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier, travel paths they could never have imagined. It is a modern Romeo and Juliet story, driven by a pop-rock score

As forbidden love blossoms between them, the lovers are forced to face death or part forever. Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the differences between their cultures and heralds a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

The powerful score features stirring ballads and rousing choral numbers.  Truly Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA is a modern crowd-pleaser, and with Fiddlehead's casting, it embraces multi-cultural casting and exuberant dancing, staging and singing.
