With the music by Mikis Theodorakis, the ballet is adapted from the novel Zorba the Greek written by ‎Nikos Kazantzakis. The Egyptian troupe bases its performance on the choreography by Lorca Massine.

Throughout the years Zorba has become one of the most successful repertoire elements of the Egyptian ballet company. 

The Cairo Opera Orchestra will be conducted by Nayer Nagui.
