CAIRO – 6 June 2021: The Egyptian Opera House succeeded in contracting with the Russian St. Petersburg Opera Company, which is the first foreign troupe to visit Egypt since the beginning of the global pandemic.
The Russian troupe will present the world show, Opera Rigoletto, by the Italian international musician Giuseppe Verdi on June 10-11 at 8 p.m.
It is noteworthy that the opera Rigoletto is characterized by musical creativity. Verdi succeeded in balancing the Italian style and the style of the German musician Wagner by dissolving the breaks between the lyrical paragraphs to flow smoothly.
It was presented for the first time in the Italian city of Venice in 1851 and achieved impressive success. It was also performed for the first time in Egypt at the Khedivial Opera Theater during the legendary ceremony that accompanied the opening of the Suez Canal in 1868.
