The Cairo Opera House gave the Spanish ballet company Flamenco de Madrid a tour of Cairo’s landmarks including the Egyptian Museum and Khan Al-Khalili. 

The troupe arrived last week to perform their Flamenco version of Carmina Burana ballet for five days at the Cairo Opera House Main Hall, and they have since also seen the 100-year-old theatre of the Arab Music Institute on Ramses Street, the Mohamed Abdel-Wahab Museum and the Museum of Musical Instruments there. 

The troupe’s art director Luciano Ruiz expressed his admiration for efforts exerted to maintain the space, its contents and glamour: “I hope that Flamenco de Madrid dance company will have the chance to perform its shows on this stage next year to be embraced with this ancient history.”
