(The action is set in Memphis and Thebes at the time of the Pharos)
In the Royal palace at Memphis, Radames, a young captain of the guard, learns from the high priest, Ramfis, that Ethiopia has again attacked and invaded Egypt's southern border, and that a new army commander has been selected by the goddess, Isis.
Alone, Radames hopes he is the chosen one, envisaging a glorious victory so that he can free his beloved Aida, the Ethiopian slave of Amneris, daughter of the King Of Egypt. Amneris, who is herself in love with Radames, comes in and questions him shrewdly; her suspicion that he loves her slave increases when Aida enters. The King has urgently called his court together to hear a messenger report that the Ethiopian army is marching on Thebes. The Egyptian King announces Radames's appointment as Egyptian commander and leads the assembled people in a battle hymn.
