SCENE II. Interior of the Temple of Vulcan at Memphis. 

A mysterious light from above. A long row of columns, one behind the other, vanishing in dark- 
ness. Statues of various deities. In the middle of the stage, above a platform covered with carpet, 
rises the altar, surmounted with sacred emblems. Golden tripods emitting the fumes of incense.

Scene and Duet. Last Finale. 

Aida and Radames — Amneris and Chorus. 

SCENE II. The scene is divided into two floors. The upper floor represents the interior of the Temple of 
Vulcan, resplendent with gold and glittering light. The lower floor is a crypt. Long arcades vanishing 
in the gloom. Colossal statues of Osiris with crossed hands support the pillars of the vault. Radames is 
discovered in the crypt, on the steps of the stairs leading into the vault. Above, two priests are in the 
act of letting down the stone which closes the subterranean- apartment.
