‘Aida’ in 1972 at the KC Lyric

The grandeur of the second act of the opera "Aida," filled the stage last night as the Lyric Theater annual season began. The opera-in-English performance opened to a near capacity audience at the Capri Theater, 11th and Central. In the foreground are two actors watching the triumphal march, the most famous scene of the opera.
