The Cairo Opera House is organising a tribute concert for late artist Hassan Kami on Thursday, 12 September, at the Main Hall.

The event — drawing attention to the legacy of Kami in Egyptian, films in addition to his important role in the classical scene — will host a number of important persons from the music and cinema scenes.

The iconic Egyptian tenor, who died at the age of 82 in 2018, began his singing career at the Cairo Opera House in 1963, later serving as its artistic director.

Among Kami's most remarkable works in opera was his organisation of the biggest performance of Aida at the Pyramids in September 1987.

Among the guests of honour at the tribute will be prominent Egyptian flutist Enes Abdel-Dayem, currently minister of culture; well-known Egyptian violinist Hassan Sharara, former dean of the Cairo Conservatory; renowned Egyptian pianist Ramzi Yassa, and many others.

Thursday, 12 September at 8 pm
Main Hall, Cairo Opera House, Zamalek
