...of Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida. Congratulations, and good luck, to the entire cast!
Now, what I know about Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida is absolutely nothing, but, given that it isn't the household name that, oh, Lion King is, I'm thinking the music in it probably isn't (and maybe even can't be) as good as Elton's hits with Bernie Taupin.
So why not just interpolate some of the earlier songs into the script?
"Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting (in Nubia)"
"The Egyptian Bitch is Back"
"Goodbye, Yellow Brick Pyramid"
"Amneris and the Jets"
"I Guess that's Why They Call it the Nile."
"Don't Let Ra, the Sun God, Go Down on Me"
"Some Egyptian Saved My Life Tonight"
"Empty Garden (Hey, Hey, Radames)"
