Obra Aida

Post by carrie » Sun Sep 22, 2019 6:17 am

Yes it's coming to Luxor and creating a lot of excitement amongst the locals. It's going to resurrect Luxor's fortune.
I just hope the corniche and other building works are completed before the big day but I fear they wont be and that the Opera will prove to be a big disappointment in attracting repeat visitors.

Surely it’ll only be the Cairo glitterati who can afford the prices....and air fares.

Definitely a “one-off” as far as they’re concerned.

With any luck they won’t be going anywhere near the corniche.....unless they’re marooned in Luxor overnight.

Of course, some may combine the evening with a week’s sightseeing.

As if.... :urm:

Maybe they will fly in via the WB heli pad direct from the airport.
better tell Marwa to be on standby.

A classic f.u. What would do you expect ? this lot couldn't organise a p*ssup in a brewery.
Anyhow as it's October my trees will be surgically culled so pop round sit on the roof
bring some beers and listen in...
It's like that Luxor art gallery, they have a carving marked up at 75,000le,
My mate just paid 100,000le for a 6 roomed house.
And the carver isn't even called Damion 'bleeding Hearst...
p*ss takers, and I know a bit about art fart, Iv'e stolen enough.. 8)

Obra the way Egyptians pronounce Opera, Obra Aid"a, they really are full of it, it's going to be Luxor's salvation.

That’s what I thought you meant Carrie....rather than Who2’s convoluted pseudo-explanation. :lol:

I’m only surprised he’s not wondering why they’re getting into a tizzy about “ ‘er next door “...

Once I had a phone call from an Egyptian musician. I told him that I was going to the opera.

"Obra! Oh, she has some very interesting shows!"

If you want to annoy an Egyptian, ask them to repeat (until they get it right!)....
