Also known as the Sayed Darwish Theatre
Also known as the Sayed Darwish Theatre, since it has been named after the famed Egyptian singer and composer who put music to the Egyptian anthem “Bilady, Bilady, Bilady”, the Alexandria Opera House is a small but amazing cultural venue of the Pearl of the Mediterranean.
In 2000, the building was put of Egypt’s National Heritage list. Consequently, it has undergone seven years of thorough renovation works that gave back its splendour to the delicately decorated premises of the opera.
The venue hosts today world-class events, including all-time favourite operas and ballets performed by local and international companies. The gorgeous auditorium also hosts concerts, recitals, Arab and international festivals and cultural gatherings.
