Cairo Opera House has succeeded in contracting the renowned Italian Étoile Ballet Theatre to perform its marvelous shows in Egypt for the first time.

The band will present one of its most acclaimed shows named Vampiri ballet on 28, 29, and 30 July at the Cairo Opera's main hall, and on 31 July at the Alexandria Opera House, also known as "Sayed Darwish Theater".

The ballet is written and choreographed by the company's artistic directors and principal dancers Ines Albertini and Walter Angelini and the melodies of the show are masterpieces from Beethoven and some of Jenkins and Shoman's extensive repertoire.

Vampiri ballet revolves around the vicissitudes of Dorian, a young boy, and Ambrosia, queen of vampires.

Based in Piacenza, Italy, Étoile Ballet Theatre opened its doors in September 2020 with dancers from all around the world. The performance of Vampiri was first staged in the US and made its Italy premiere in October 2021.
