Aida at White Plains Performing Arts Center
With a score by John and Rice and book by David Henry Hwang, Linda Woolverton, and Robert Falls, Aida is inspired by Giuseppe Verdi and Antonio Ghislanzoni's 1871 opera of the same name, telling the story of a love triangle between an enslaved Nubian princess, the Egyptian princess she serves, and the man to which the latter is betrothed. Originally produced by Disney Theatrical, Aida premiered on Broadway in 2000, earning the production's original star Heather Headley a Tony Award.
WPPAC's production is directed by Amy Griffin, with Stephen Ferri serving as music director and choreography by Anthony Murphy. Scenic design is by Christopher & Justin Swader, lighting design by Jamie Roderick, and sound design by Jon Weston, with T. Rick Jones serving as stage manager.
