FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE (Reprise) RADAMES
Nothing is an accident
We are free to have it all
We are what we want to be
It's in ourselves to rise or fall

(RADAMES picks up a goblet from the table.)

This is easy to believe
When distant places call to me
It's harder from the palace yard
Fortune favors the...

(RADAMES turns upstage and throws the chalice off. AIDA and the SERVANT turn
and begin to walk off.)

RADAMES
(To Aida.)
No, stay...

AIDA
Yes, Captain?

RADAMES
Where are you from?

AIDA
Ikaita. It a village near...

RADAMES
...near the Second Cataract. The river's an entirely different color there.

AIDA
No, it's an entirely different color here.

RADAMES
Fair enough.

AIDA
My father and I use to spend days sailing the Nile. He'd let me choose the
course. And sometimes I'd even run us aground on purpose... whenever I wanted
to see something on the shore.

RADAMES
Did you ever sail north?

AIDA
No. My father felt the First Cataract, being so close to the border of Egypt
was too...Was too dangerous a place to take me.

RADAMES
But there are no Egyptians in the First Cataract. Only these tiny, grassy
islands. And the sunlight is different there. In Egypt it is direct and
harsh. But there it shimmers. It's the most beautiful place I've ever seen.

AIDA
Of course, it's Nubia. I would like to see that part of my country.
