* ArrangedMarriage: Amneris and Radames
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Nubia is not a separate Kingdom/country from Egypt. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nubia It's actually a region in North Africa]] which ''includes'' Egypt (at least Southern Egypt). In the opera, Aida was a Princess from Ethiopia, and it's uncertain why this change was made.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilSoundsDeep: {{Downplayed|Trope}} -- Zoser's voice is most definitely not "deep," but he's still the lowest voiced of the male cast (being a bari-tenor as opposed to Radames' and Mereb's firm TenorBoy-ness).

Added DiffLines:

* BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama: While the racial difference isn't mentioned often, it's brought up enough for the audience to know that this is the major reason why Aida and Radames relationship is forbidden.


Added DiffLines:

** Plus, Aida' s slave status (and the way it happened, with her and her companions being abducted) and their racial difference seems eerily--and perhaps deliberately--reminiscent of slave days in the US.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Amneris is more sympathetic and less of a {{Clingy Jealous Girl}} than in the original opera.

* CanonForeigner: Zoser and Mereb don't appear in Verdi's opera.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler: Aida's father is killed in the opera, but escapes in the musical, with [[CanonForeigner Mereb]] killed instead.]]
