Despite the passing of the "Star of the East," Umm Kulthum, in 1975, her voice still resonates gloriously in the skies of the East to this day. Since its first season, the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Cultural Centre has been keen on reviving the memory of the Lady of Arabic singing in “Kalthoumiyat” concerts, featuring a selection of talented singers, and in the “Leilat Al-Atlal” (Night of the Ruins) concert, where we creatively revived her masterpiece “Al-Atlal” and other songs like never before.

During this season, the National Theatre will host a new experience for two nights, on May 29th and 30th, with a musical play titled “Umm Kulthum.” This production features the talented Egyptian singer, Marwa Nagy, and pays homage to the legendary singing icon. The show combines dramatic scenes with live singing, delving into key moments in the life of the “Star of the East.” Through portraying various characters that influenced her career, the play also presents a bouquet of Umm Kulthum’s most beautiful songs from those periods, performed by the Egyptian singer Marwa Nagy, who embodies the character of Umm Kulthum. Supporting the live performances is a musical ensemble led by conductor Ihab Abdelhamid.
