An Ethiopian princess, Aida, is captured in Egypt. She betrays her true identity and is now a slave to Amneris, the Egyptian King’s daughter. Aida and Radamès, an Egyptian general, are secretly in love but he is betrothed to Amneris. When Radamès leads an army against Ethiopia, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against her responsibility as the leader of her people.
