"Aida" to be performed at Masada, Arabs upset

The Islamic Jihad newspaper Palestine Today says that the staging of Verdi's opera Aida next month in front of Masada is showing how Israel is taking advantage of Egypt's turmoil.

The props for the opera include a reproduction of the Sphinx as well as statues of other Pharaohs.

The opera tells the love story of an Ethiopian princess and an Egyptian army officer.

The article says that Israel is "stealing" the opera. Not quite sure how.
