An oasis of calm and high culture in Egypt’s bustling capital will host one of Mozart’s most famous operas this spring.
The Cairo Opera House will stage Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) from April 14th to 17th.
Written by the Austrian composer in 1786, the opera follows on directly from the events of the Barber of Seville and takes place in the court of Countess Rosina, where the Count’s valet, Figaro, is set to be married to his beloved Susanna.
The Cairo Opera House should be a key stop for visitors on Egypt tours as it is one of the most impressive cultural venues in the entire country.
In addition to its rich and varied performance schedule it also co-ordinates educational programmes and workshops under the auspices of the National Cultural Centre.
As a unique opportunity to see a production of this classic work against the backdrop of one of the most richly historic and culturally unique countries in the world, this should not be missed.
