Ballet Zorba (1946) is performed by the Cairo Opera Ballet Company at the Cairo Opera House between 28 March and 31 March.

With the music by Mikis Theodorakis, the ballet is adapted from the novel Zorba the Greek written by ‎Nikos Kazantzakis. The Egyptian troupe bases its performance on the choreography by Lorca Massine.

Throughout the years Zorba has become one of the most successful repertoire elements of the Egyptian ballet company.

The Cairo Opera Orchestra is conducted by Nayer Nagui.
