We may not always enjoy high drama on holidays, but this is a little different. The charming Egyptian resort of El Gouna has announced plans to show the world famous Metropolitan Opera.
Basically the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts its performances directly to cinemas around the world. It has already been a huge success and is now coming to El Gouna.
Right on the Red Sea, El Gouna is the first location in Egypt, outside of Cairo to opt for this high-tech live stream of fantastic opera. For anyone looking for winter sunshine, it’s a perfect blend of spending all days on the beach by day and indulging in a fantastic cultural excursion by night.
Sherina Sennar, Public Relations Manager of Orascom Development Destinations Marketing Department told us: “With 10km of secluded coastline, unspoilt lagoons and pristine islands enveloped in year-round sunshine, El Gouna is the perfect winter-sun destination and now we have the added dimension of live-streamed opera in the town.”
Already announced performances include Il Travatore, Carmen and Othello. At just ten euro each, it’s a bargain night out in the sunny Red Sea surrounds. The newest season runs until April 27, so there is plenty of time left to decide what to see.
