The Voice of Egyptian Dance, A Tribute to Oum Kalthoum , by Jawaahir Dance Company
Cassandra and Jawaahir invite you to join us in a concert celebration of the Egyptian vocal giant Um Kalthoum. We will perform new and revived works representing the iconic expressions of the late, great Egyptian singer. You will have the unique opportunity to hear some of these musical gems in the singer’s own voice.
Set in a small town that is in a deep economic depression, the townspeople await the visit of Claire Zachanassian, who was driven out of town as a young girl years ago because she was pregnant. Now the wealthiest person in the world who has just married her 8th husband, she returns to a town that desperately hopes her millions will save them. She, however, has a different agenda, returning with the mission to buy justice: she will offer the town her fortune in exchange for the life of the man who not only spurned her but rigged the public trial against her.
