The Metropolitan Opera’s Egyptian love story Aida is elevated with chorale support, ballet numbers and complex ensembles in a tale centered around three characters with difficult decisions to make. The daughter of the pharaoh and her slave Aida, in her own right a princess but of an enemy kingdom, both love Radamés, an Egyptian warrior. Conflict ensues as they struggle through the warring obligations of public duty and private life in a crescendo of inspired performances.

Thursday 8/13. $11-15, 1pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
