CAIRO - 10 October 2019: The Egyptian Opera House will broadcast live American Metropolitan Opera Shows after renewing the contract for the tenth year in a row.
Turandot's opera by renowned Italian musician Giacomo Puccini will stage on October 12 at 7 p.m. at the small theater.
Turandot Opera is inspired by the 1762 play “1000 nights” written by Carlo Gozzi and is divided into three chapters.
The play takes place in China, where Prince Calaf falls in love with Princess Turandot, who pledged to marry him if he solves three complicated puzzles. Despite solving the complicated puzzles, the princess continues to refuse marrying him.
It is noteworthy that Puccini died before completing Opera Turandot. The remaining section of the play was written by Franco Alfano, and premiered for the first time in Milan's La Scala Theater on April 25, 1926.
Additionally, the live broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera shows for the 2019-2020 season will include nine of the most important contemporary and classical operettas.
The live broadcast of the American metropolitan shows in the Egyptian opera comes within the framework of efforts of communication between the two operas that aim at creating a state of artistic and cultural vogue in Egypt.
The broadcast will become a reality through the use of high-quality technology which features a special sound system and a huge screen which covers the entire space of the small theater.
