Egypt's Al-Nour Wal Amal Chamber Orchestra is getting ready for the Paris performance of Days and Nights of the Heart Tree

Days and Nights of the Heart Tree is a music production that combines Al-Nour Wal Amal Chamber Orchestra with singers and dancers.

The music to the 80-minute long performance was composed by French-Algerian writer and composer Tarik Benouarka.

The performance was staged at the Cairo Opera House on 30 September, and will be performed in Paris at Salle Gaveau Theatre in Paris on Thursday, 5 November.

In the performance, the orchestra is joined by the Egyptian Paris-based tenor Ragaa El-Din in the role of Nour, and Syrian soprano Rasha Rizk in the role of Amal. The performance includes also a choir, a narrator and a contemporary dance troupe.

The orchestra is conducted by Mohamed Saad Basha.

Ahram Online attends the general rehearsal on Wednesday, 4 November.
