Art Alert: King Lear on Cairo stage four times in December
Published in Ahram Online on 08 - 12 - 2019

An Egyptian Arabic adaptation of William Shakespeare's King Lear, starring renowned actor Yehia El-Fakharany and other well-known actors, will be staged by Cairo Show four times in December at the Cairo Festival City's theatre.
After a successful tour in Saudi Arabia during Riyadh Season, King Lear will be on stage on 13, 20, 27 and 31 December.
Directed by Tamer Karam, the famous play stars many known actors including Heba Magdi, Rania Farid Shawki, Riham Abdel-Ghafour, Nidal El-Shafie, Ahmed Fouad Selim, and Mohamed Fahim.
El-Fakharany recently launched an art exhibition titled 'Draw Yehia El-Fakharany' with the participation of young artists as part of an initiative by the Youth and Sports Ministry. The gallery is held in the backyard of the theatre and will see the actor painted in several important roles he played for cinema, TV and theatre.
King Lear, translated by professor Fatma Mousa with music by producer Mostafa El-Halawany, was first staged in Saudi Arabia in mid-July during the Jeddah Season.
El-Fakharany has been finding success with the play since its premier in April, and performed the same role with another crew at the National Theatre for many years, gaining widespread appreciation from audiences and critics.
Cairo Show is a newly established theatre production company with four new halls across Cairo, launching with the comedic play Talat Ayam Fil Sahel (Three Days on the Coast), starring Mohamed Henedy, earlier this year.
Cairo Show is also premiering Aladdin starring Ahmed Ezz during Riyadh Season, describing it as "the biggest production of 2020."
King Lear Programme
Marquee Theatre, Cairo Festival City, New Cairo
13, 20, 27 and 31 December
