Not exactly classical, but wonderful nonetheless!
Hello friends 👋
I would love to invite you all to tune in to watch a beautiful "musical" (I'm not sure what to label it exactly, so let's call it a musical!) - in celebration of the grand opening of the newly renovated Sphinx Avenue, Luxor, Egypt. The musical itself starts around minute -35 of the linked video. If you have some extra time on your hands, you might find the preceeding documentaries/ talks/ interviews useful.
Hope you enjoy!
Wow, what a fabulous venue!
It featured on the BBC TV news yesterday. Spectacular! I would love to be able to visit the ancient temples.
A few years ago we saw the inside of a replica of a painted temple in the museum at Le Mans in France. I would love to visit some of the originals.
@Hugh, it's really awe-inspiring to stand in one of those ancient temples. One feels so small and insignificant in the face of such grandeur!
(As a child, my favourite game was to imagine being a princess - of course I had to be a princess 😉 😂- in such buildings, in old times. My favourite era, however, was the Greco-Roman period).
How glorious! I've only watched some snippets, but have added it to my Youtube watch list so I can watch the whole thing. I'll wait until I'm home to see it - the Internet at our cabin is not always great.
Being a white Australian, my sense of established history was very limited (completely different from Aboriginal history - I used to live near a site where indigenous Australians had camped for over 22,000 years). When I first went to England, the sense of history I got when walking into an 11th century church or along the remains of an early Roman road was an eye opener. What it must be like to live in Egypt, with its extraordinary history!
