Bollywood fusion show rocks Cairo Opera House

Apr 18 2013, 5:02am CDT | by

Cairo, April 18 (IANS) In a first of its kind in Egypt, the Indian embassy and Teamwork productions in collaboration with the soloists of the Cairo Opera Ballet Company presented "Bollywood Music and Dance Fusion" at the Opera House here last weekend, drawing enthusiastic support from the audience.

Cairo, April 18 — In a first of its kind in Egypt, the Indian embassy and Teamwork productions in collaboration with the soloists of the Cairo Opera Ballet Company presented "Bollywood Music and Dance Fusion" at the Opera House here last weekend, drawing enthusiastic support from the audience.

Bollywood Fusion was a whirlwind of colorful dancing, singing and performances by Bollywood singers Mukesh Tomar, Parul Mishra, and choreographed by Gilles Chuyen with dancers from the Cairo Opera Ballet Company. The show wove together melodic music, vibrant costumes, amazing lighting and great dancing into a colourful spectacle.

Renowned Egyptian actor Hisham Abbas, who was the chief guest for the launch of the show April 14, sprang a surprise by singing his famous song 'Nare Nare' along with Parul and repeated the performance owing to its popularity on the first day.

Renowned Egyptian actress Leila Elwi also graced the second day's performance with her presence along with several dignitaries from the government of Egypt and notable members of society.

A Bollywood workshop preceding the performance was also conducted by Gilles Chuyen at the Al Sawy Culture Wheel earlier April 13.

Trained in France in folk, modern Jazz, ballet and contemporary dance styles, Gilles Chuyen has been teaching Bollywood dance style extensively in India, the UK and South Africa. He has choreographed plays directed by the most prestigious Indian directors, which have taken him all over India and to Britain, Singapore, Pakistan, Mexico and Columbia.

The festival was presented by TCI Sanmar chemicals SAE, the largest Indian investor in Egypt. The main sponsors of the event were the Kirloskars, the Aditya Birla Group and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).
