The National Theater, Cairo

The national theater in Cairo is a cultural icon for art and literature in Egypt, unfortunately during some of the unfortunate events that went along with 25th January revolution the theater was burnt down and had to be reconstructed.
The old classic theme has been restored almost the same exactly as it was before the fire to give awesome looking authentic Egyptian interiors and architectural design, and this is where we were contacted to shoot the theater after the renovation has been finished.
Actually it was a happy moment for me as I love to shoot beautiful interiors/architecture, so on the time I took my equipment and went there shooting for a full day the main hall and stage, with all its lovely details and architectural features. We used a lot of lighting to bring it up, also the new building adjacent to the old one had its interface built from reflective glass, so when you look you can clearly watch the reflection of the old building on the glass of the new one which kind of represents the classic and modern look at the same time.
We had to run fast because we had a lot to shoot and not a lot of time to shoot all of it.
And now I leave you with few images from the project.
