The West Palm Beach premiere of Elton and Tim Rice's Aida takes place at 8 p.m., January 7, 2007, at the Kravis Center For The Performing Arts.

Tickets range from $15-$55, and will be available beginning 9 a.m., Saturday, September 16.

Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, the musical is about the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love.

 Aida is an epic and classic tale of love, loyalty, betrayal, and courage, with an exhilarating Tony and Grammy Award-winning score by Sirs Elton and Tim, their first collaboration since writing the music for The Lion King.

Time magazine proclaimed it a big, bright show with luscious Elton John melodies.
