The one-of-a-time event, scheduled on 11 October 2023, was announced by Italy's ambassador to Egypt Michele Quaroni and the CEO of the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board (ETPB) Amr El-Qadi during a reception held at the Italian embassy last week.

“The concert will be supported by important Italian and Egyptian sponsors, including the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It will be one of the biggest cultural events ever staged in Egypt,” the Italian ambassador revealed.

Dubbed “an operatic concert," the details of the participating musicians and soloists are yet to be revealed alongside more information about the whole production to be staged at the Pyramid’s feet.

The tickets to the event, and more details, will be available in mid-August.

This is the first time for the world-renowned Teatro di San Carlo in Naples to perform in Egypt. 

The oldest and continuously active venue for opera in the world, the Teatro di San Carlo opened in 1737, decades before either Milan's La Scala or Venice's La Fenice.

The theatre provides rich annual programming, showcasing its renowned troupes from operatic performances to ballet and orchestral events.
