AMNERIS' DRESSING ROOM

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

AMNERIS' DRESSING ROOM AMNERIS sits at her dressing stand, brushing her hair, forcibly. AIDA enters.

AIDA
(Offers to brush AMNERIS' hair.)
Here, let me.
(AMNERIS hands her the brush. AIDA brushes the Princess' hair.)
How is your father?

AMNERIS
I don't understand it. This illness of his came on so suddenly. Weeks ago he
was healthy. And the court physicians, they have no idea what it is. Well,
it was a magnificent feast, though, wasn't it?

AIDA
Yes, princess.

AMNERIS
Oh, there is so much to do to get ready for the wedding ceremony. From the
bronzed entry statue of me, to the centerpieces of lilies and roses arranged
to look like... me.

AIDA
It must be difficult.

AMNERIS
Planning a wedding?

AIDA
No. Being a Princess.

AMNERIS
Oh, you have no idea. The responsibilities are... overwhelming.

AIDA
Your people must expect so much.

AMNERIS
They want a goddess and I'm just...

AIDA
Human.
