On Sunday El-Warsha theatre troupe will perform one of the masterpieces of poet Beiram El-Tonsi, with accompaniment by musician Zakaria Ahmed at  the Falaki Theatre, as part of the D-CAF festival.

Youm El-Qiyama (Doomsday), an operetta, was written by El-Tonsi in the early 1940s and first sung by the diva of the day, Fathia Ahmed.

However, the adaptation by El-Warsha is more focused on the brilliant music and songs, stitching them together to form a story.

The performance includes a special photo gallery celebrating the troupe's 30 years of telling stories and creating art.


8pm, Sunday 19 March
