Cairo Opera House
Opened in 1988, the Opera House complex is a stunning jewel of postmodernist architecture incorporating Islamic and Pharaonic motifs. There are two opera halls, one of which is strictly jacket-and-tie while the other is a little more laid back. The complex also offers an open-air theater and an amphitheater for summer performances. There is always something going on here, usually more than one event per night, so it is advisable to call ahead or check the website for the schedule. International music, ballet and opera troupes perform here throughout the year and tickets cost a fraction of what one would pay to see the same performance elsewhere.
The atmosphere was excellent , we reserved our tickets early enough to get the best seats, the price was quite reasonable less than 30$ .. what we did not like was te traffic jam to reach the opera house and the long time waisted for parking.
