The evening will include a one-act comic opera 'The Impresario' and Symphony No. 35 'Haffner'.
Composed by Mozart in 1786 as a ‘Singspiel’ to a German libretto by Gottlieb Stephanie, The Impresario (Der Schauspieldirektor) is an enchanting satire in which two singers compete for the same role, with an impresario pressured by a wealthy businessman. With enchanting music and lots of humour, the opera provides a cheerful spirit to audiences. Following the sparks of a lovely competition, expressed in a known trio as 'Ich Bin die Erste Sängerin' both singers are accepted.
Symphony No. 35 in D major, K. 385, was composed by Mozart in 1782, commissioned by the Haffner’s, a prominent Salzburg family (hence the name 'Haffner' symphony).
Hisham El-Tally directs the opera with singers from the Cairo Opera Company: Sarah Enany, Ingy Mohsen, Amina Khairat, Ibrahim Nagui, Amr Medhat and Ezzat Ahmed. Hisham Gabr will conduct Cairo Opera Orchestra.
