* LoveTriangle: Aida, Radames and Amneris. [[TriangRelations Mixture of 1 and 3]], though Radames is definitely not neutral toward either woman.
** The show makes it even more blatant by having a laser triangle light up behind the three while they sing "A Step Too Far" at the beginning of Act II.

The show makes may make it even more blatant by having a laser triangle light up behind the three or positioning them to form a triangle while they sing "A Step Too Far" at the beginning of Act II.



* SexyDiscretionShot: Aida and Radames embrace passionately at the end of "Elaborate Lives". The scene fades to black. When it fades back in, they're lying in each others arms, with him shirtless and her dress now wrapped around her in ModestyBedsheet style.

Added DiffLines:

* TriangRelations: Type 8: Radames and Amneris as childhood friends/arranged marriage, Amneris and Aida as friends, Aida and Radames as lovers. On romantic feelings alone, towards the beginning it's a type 5 or 10, and by the end more of a type 4 (Amneris A, Radames B, Aida C in both cases).

Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: Aida and Amneris, though she technically owns Aida, Amenris treat's her kindly, and the two are able to relate well to one another, due to the fact that, unknown to Amneris, they both are Princess.
-->'''Aida''': ''(about speaking to Radames on Amneris behalf)'' Princess... ''Please'' don't make me.
-->'''Amneris''': ''(tenderly)'' I would never make you, I am asking you, as my friend.

Added DiffLines:

* FadingIntoTheNextSong: "Every Story Is A Love Story" turns into "Fortune Favors The Brave". On the original cast recording, one can even hear Amneris singing the final note of the first song as the second one begins.

* StuntCasting: The casting of R&B stars such as Toni Braxton, Michelle Williams, and Deborah Cox, in the title role. Fantastic singing, but some found the acting to border on {{Narm}}.
