The Italian State Radio Orchestra was conducted by Giuseppe Morelli, the ballet was choreographed by Margherita Wallmann.  The film was screened out of competition at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival.  

This is the desperate love story of an Ethiopian slave Aida (Sophia Loren) staying in the then capital of Egypt Memphis with the young Egyptian supreme commander Radames (Luciano). Aida’s mistress, Amneris (Lois Maxwell), the daughter of the pharaoh is too in love with Radames. Aida doesn’t know how to hide her love, and Amneris is jealous of her because of her beauty and simplicity.

On the war with the Ethiopians, Egypt will concur and the pharaoh will declare the marriage of his daughter with Radames. Radames will come to meet Aida, perhaps for the last time! Aida doesn’t know what to do, or whether she will get her love back?
