Aida Backdrops For Rent

Aida combines the historical context of Egypt with the joys and perils of star-crossed lovers. At Charles H. Stewart, you’ll find several backdrops that will capture Aida’s beautiful essence at a great cost. 

Flash Back to Ancient Egypt

Aida backdrop rentals should illustrate the setting of Ancient Egypt, from the dry desert to Egyptian safari settings, and beautiful and lavish palaces. When this scenery is included, audiences will be transported back to the Old Kingdom of Egypt, otherwise known as the Age of the Pyramids. Aida is full of themes of love, loyalty, and betrayal, and the backdrop should match the musical’s tone.

Charles H. Stewart offers a variety of Aida backdrops for rent from deserts, night sky stars, a sunset sun, an Arabian market, a moonlight serenade, and much more.
