The theater was full of its end, and the attendees, men, women and youth, wore formal evening clothes, as if it was a true lyrical evening of Umm Kulthum going back to the past.

The show was for 15 minutes, and Umm Kulthum sang one of her famous songs "I confused my heart with you", Written by the Egyptian poet Ahmed Rami Tune it Riad Alsunbati.

Aya Yassin, assistant professor at the Faculty of Medicine at Ain Shams University, said to"France Press": "I came today because I always dreamed of attending a Umm Kulthum party".

She added "My grandmother used to talk to me about the famous Thursday concerts of Umm Kulthum, which made me want to come".

Umm Kulthum (Fatima Ibrahim Al-Beltagi) was born in December 1898 in the village of Tamai Al-Zahira in the Dakahlia Governorate in the Nile Delta.

She began her artistic career when she was young, when she was seeking religious tensions with her father and brother, until she was discovered by Sheikh Zakaria Ahmed and Abu Al-Ella Muhammad, who are two of the major composers of Arab music in Egypt.

Umm Kulthum remains more than 4 decades after her death, one of the most famous icons of Arab music ever, and her voice is still widely heard throughout the Arab world and the world.

The head of the Egyptian opera, Magdy Saber, made it clear last week that the use of new technologies aims to attract young generations and encourage them to adhere to their heritage and history.

Saber’s words came at a time when the singing scene in Egypt is witnessing a heated conflict between a modern generation that performs a new color of loud youth music, called "Festivals", And the Syndicate of Musical Professions, which decided to prohibit dealing with these singers on the pretext of protecting public taste.

In that regard, Mustafa, 60, said he was among the attendees "I was formerly a military man and came here because I miss an art that refines ethics"And he added "I am fed up with what the modern generation offers under the name of art, which is nothing but distortion".

According to Saber, the opera is expected to perform concerts similar to this technique to other names of ritual giants such as Muhammad Abd-alwahab AndAbdel Halim Hafez.

And Friday’s concert was not the first appearance of its kind by Umm Kulthum, as planet East appeared on stage twice last year thanks to hologram technology in Saudi Arabia and then in Dubai.
