The Cairo performance of 'L’inganno Felice' surprised the audience with unconventional settings

On 1 and 2 November the Cairo Opera Company performed L’inganno Felice (The Happy Stratagem, aka The Fortunate Deception), a one-act opera by Gioachino Rossini (1792 – 1868), to the libretto by Giuseppe Maria Foppa.

Set within unconventional settings at the Cairo Opera House, where Nisa (Isabella) and Tarabotto were portrayed as Native Americans, the opera was directed by Mahdy Sayed.  

L’inganno Felice was sung in Italian to piano accompaniment with secco recitative in Arabic. Greig Marin who played piano accompaniment during the evening was also the opera's music director.

The cast included: Duke Bertrando (Hisham El-Guindy, tenor), Isabella/Nisa (Sara Enany, soprano),  Ormondo (Ezzat Ghaneim, baritone), Batone (Emad Adel, bass-baritone), Tarabotto (Moustafa Mohamed, baritone).
