MUSCAT – The Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) concluded its 2023/24 season with a captivating performance of Scheherazade by the Cairo Opera, directed by Walid Aouni. Audiences filled the Royal Opera House of Musical Arts to experience the world of 1001 Nights through a dazzling dance performance by the Cairo Opera’s Modern Dance.

Under the visionary direction of Walid Aouni, Artistic Director, Director, and Designer of the Egyptian Modern Dance, the performance spellbound audiences with its innovative interpretation of one of Arab history’s most famous tales.

Aouni’s reimagining of Scheherazade, inspired by Rimsky-Korsakov’s evocative score, featured unique staging and costumes that brought the story to life.

“What you hear is a depiction of what can be read in the book or seen in our imaginations, such as the smell of a perfume or the feel or meaning of a rhythm: arguably no composer reaches as deeply into story, chasing musical expression to interpret sentences, as Rimsky-Korsakov did,” explained Aouni.
