The Cervantes Institute in Cairo is organising a photography exhibition of the flamenco version of the Carmen Opera from 5-11 April.
The exhibition was opened by Director of the Cervantes Institutes in Cairo and Alexandria, Javier Ruiz Sierra, with the participation of the exhibition's curator, Maher Zekry, and Egyptian photographers Emad Omar and Mohamed Zekry.
The exhibition showcases 60 photographs taken by the two Egyptian photographers during the Carmen Opera performances presented in Egypt by the Flamenco Ballet de Madrid, which met with great success on the stage of the Cairo Opera House.
Sierra highlighted the importance of this show and the significance of the flamenco art in Spain, praising the great work of Zekry and the photographers.
For his part, Zekry said that the exhibition photos were arranged according to the work events, starting with an image of the first scene and ending with the last scene, the death of Carmen.
It is noteworthy that a more expanded version of this exhibition will be held at the Cairo Opera House, in cooperation with the Cervantes Institute, when Flamenco de Madrid ballet presents its upcoming performances in the period from 14 to 20 October.
The exhibition will remain open to the public until 11 April, Sunday to Thursday from 11am to 5pm.
