Nicki Minaj Cancels Saudi Arabia Concert After 'Better Educating Herself'

Egyptian Theatre Production of 'King Lear' to Show in Saudi Arabia This July

The play, starring Yehia Al Fakharany, has received rave reviews from all quarters.

Egyptian Theatre Production of 'King Lear' to Show in Saudi Arabia This July

The star-studded, critically-acclaimed Egyptian theatre production of Shakespeare's King Lear is making its way to Saudi Arabia, according to Egypt Today. The play will run in the kingdom from July 16th until the 21st.

After its initial run in Egypt in 2011, the production was revived earlier this year, with veteran actor, Yehia Al Fakharany, reprising the role in a cast that also includes the likes of Farouk El Fishawy, Mohamed Farag, Noha Abdeen, Heba Magdy, Riham Abdel Ghafour, Rania Farid Shawky, Ahmed Azmy, Ahmed Fouad Selim and Nedal Al-Shafie.

Considered one of Shakespeare's greatest works, the story tells of the eponymous British king as he decides to abdicate himself and bequeath his power and land to two of his three daughters, who shower him with flattery and admiration to seize power.

The news comes as the latest in a string of moves by Saudi Arabia's General Entertainment Authority to bring more music and cultureevents to the masses and follows the revelation that Nicki Minaj is to perform in Saudi Arabia.
