Published in Ahram Online on 14 - 10 - 2019

On four consecutive evenings, from 15 to 18 October, the Cairo Opera Ballet Company and the Cairo Opera Orchestra, conducted by Mohamed Saad Basha, will stage the ballet Cleopatra. The ballet is choreographed by José Perez.
This is the first time that the Cairo Opera House has produced its own take on the famous queen, following a commission of Egyptian composer and conductor Mohamed Saad Basha earlier this year.
During the four performances, Saad Basha will also conduct the orchestra.
Apart from the Cairo Opera Ballet Company and the Cairo Opera Orchestra, the ballet includes also the efforts of many other artists, such as assistant choreographer René de Cárdenas, artistic director Erminia Kamel, costume designer Manuela Scerri, set designer Mohamed El Gharabawy and lighting designer Yasser Shaalan.
The script of Cleopatra ballet was written by José Perez and Erminia Kamel.
