Egypt set to stage Mozart concerts
Travellers planning a trip to Egypt next year will be able to attend two very special concerts that are aimed at celebrating the work of legendary musician Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Although he was mostly associated with Vienna, Dutch scholar Dr. Tjeu van den Berk believes Mozart's most famous work The Magic Flute was set in an imagined version of Ancient Egypt.
Tourism chiefs have confirmed two unique performances will be staged in order to highlight the link between one of the world's greatest ever composers and the North African country.
The Dutch Combattimento Consort Amsterdam are set to put on a show at Luxor Temple in 2013 and this will be followed by the musical premiere of Mozart in Egypt, which is a combination of Mozart's music and old Egyptian sounds.
Holidaymakers can also see the latter at the Cairo Opera House and the country's travel representatives confirmed that a series of Mozart-themed workshops would be staged across Egypt too.
