'Pinocchio: A Puppet's Story' is retold through dance and music by Italian actor and director at the Cairo Opera House on Sunday 5 May

Pinocchio: A Puppet's Story, based on the timeless story of a wooden puppet by Carlo Collodi, will premier in Egypt at the Cairo Opera House on Sunday 5 May.

The production, created by Italian director and performer Massimiliano Finazzer Flory, combines narration, theatre, dance and music. With minimal props, the director suggests his own interpretation of the known Italian literary piece.

The performance will include also two dancers: Francesca Lombardo and Chiara Taviani. The assistant director is Alessandro Santi.

Pinocchio: A Puppet's Story has recently toured the United States where it was met with a great acclaim from the audiences.
