A great performance by incredibly skilled musicians and dancers. The open courtyard where it takes place is magic.

Sensational music and dance in a great setting. Highly recommend this experience. Also nice that western tourists are in the minority.

This performance was so mesmerizing that we went to see it twice: once at the beginning of our 2 1/2 weeks in Egypt and once at the end. It is that good. To grab the best seats, go an hour early.
