History meets the present in a once in a life time event

The Pharaohs golden parade

A holistic experience in Cairo where the civilization and history meet the present in The Pharaoh's golden parade. History still matters while the whole world is setting eyes on this rare event.

The ceremony for moving 22 mummies of kings and queens who ruled Egypt thousands of years ago, including King Ramesses II's mummy, from the Egyptian Museum in central Cairo to the National Museum of Civilization in Fassatat, south of Cairo.

Musical show on the pyramids

In a moment of pride, a celebration is held whilst the mummies are being moved in a theatrical performance with the Egyptian maestro Nader Abbasi, the conductor of the orchestra and choral of the Philharmonic Union.

They will use musical instruments like those used in ancient times but more developed ones, instruments that featured by flute and oud machines.

Much of the musical show was inspired by ancient Egypt, or something like that used in the Pharaonic era, pointing out that the orchestra's costumes would be classical rather than pharaonic.

Egypt is celebrating.

Every city in Egypt is celebrating with a mesmerizing show that will take your breath away.

Luxor, Aswan, and Cairo at the pyramids are celebrating each in their way with a pharaonic show.

The show is being solely sung in the ancient Egyptian language, noting that the songs are taken from the Book of the Dead and some of the notices written on the temples, stating that, even though it could be a challenge, but nothing is hard on the Egyptians.
