Neighborhood: Zamalek
Overview

Opened in 1988, the Opera House complex is a stunning jewel of postmodernist architecture incorporating Islamic and Pharaonic motifs. There are two opera halls, one of which is strictly jacket-and-tie while the other is a little more laid back. The complex also offers an open-air theater and an amphitheater for summer performances. There is always something going on here, usually more than one event per night, so it is advisable to call ahead or check the website for the schedule. International music, ballet and opera troupes perform here throughout the year and tickets cost a fraction of what one would pay to see the same performance elsewhere.
