Egyptian musical theatre company Fabrica will give two different performances in Cairo and Alexandria in November.

Fabrica will perform parts of Disney's Aladdin and Lion King in concert twice on Thursday 14 November at the ‎‎Bibliotheca Alexandrina amid their show entitled 'DisneyMania.'

Fabrica will give another performance entitled 'Fabrica Goes Rock' on 21 November, the AUC Tahrir Cultural Center where they cover a selection of "the most well-known rock songs throughout history, from Queen, The Beatles and Pink Floyd and Aerosmith."

Fabrica is a musical theatre company that was founded in 2013 by Egyptian soprano Neveen Allouba and Mohamed Abou Elkheir to develop the performing arts scene through innovative projects and trainings.

In October, Fabrica won the award for Best Music Video during the ninth annual MoziMotion – iPhone Film Festival, held in Hilversum, Netherlands for their medley video "Mercury Rising: A Queen Tribute" launched in January after Hollywood hit "Bohemian Rhapsody" was released.

The same video has been shortlisted for Best Music Video, along with four others, at the Cine4All Fest, the first Egyptian online film festival with the awards ceremony and live screening to be held every year in Egypt for Documentaries, Short Films, and Music Videos.
