Broadway Aida Musical Elton John Tim Rice
Elton John & Tim Rice's Aida: The Making of a Broadway Musical
You'll find this oversized book ripe with details, from conception to Broadway debut, and filled with pages of
colorful photos that illuminate the production. Journalist and author Michael Lassell traces the show's history with
interviews from those intimately involved, from writer and composer Elton John and Tim Rice to stars Adam Pascal and
Heather Headley to costume designers and choreographers. His unrivaled access allows us to visit every aspect of the production.
The book is divided into four chapters: story, composition, production, and performance. The first section describes the
timeless tragedy and romance of Aida and of its rebirth from acclaimed opera to modern day rock musical. John and Rice's
hammering out the numbers is described in the second part, and we begin to see the show's evolution from its originally
titled "Elaborate Lives" Atlanta production. Set design, art direction, scenery, and costuming are detailed in the third
chapter, and the last focuses on performance details.
The most ardent fan will always find such books lacking, but in fairness it gives the common theatre-goer a good sense of
the energy required to stage a Broadway production. One of the best features is the photos, both plentiful and saturated with
color. I especially liked the visual contrasts between various stages of the show, such as early costume sketches compared
with the final outfits. The breadth of interviews also conveys the passion of an extraordinary "Aida" team.
A couple of things could have been improved upon. While I enjoyed the pictures, there was a redundancy to some. Two full
page spreads of "Dance of the Robe," for example, one to illustrate the lighting and a second to show the choreography,
proved unnecessary. Space dedicated to "sequence shots," a cluster of essentially the same candid photo, could also have
been better utilized with more production stills or, better yet, meatier text. At the core of the show is the story, its
historical and contemporary implications, and this book doesn't drive into the heart of the characters quite
forcefully enough. Lassell only dedicates several pages at the end to the actors' interpretations of their characters.

Aida (Pvg) by Elton John and Tim Rice
This book is excellent - it contains piano music for most of the songs in the musical, and the transcriptions are largely
faithful to the very pianistic Broadway score. All of the songs are complete, containing the piano versions of the
instrumental solos found in the actual score. It also has guitar chords and lyrics for singers, with a separate line for
the singers' notes, complete with harmonies. Unlike many Broadway music books, this one is very thorough and does not
disappoint!!! Although that playing some songs in their entirety may be a difficult task for beginning pianists, the
result of playing the music from this great musical is well worth the effort, and I'm sure that pianists and singers of all levels will enjoy this book.
