Watch & Listen: Cleopatra, The Last Pharaoh

Where: Bijou Theatre /  803 S Gay St. Knoxville

GO! Contemporary Dance Works brings ancient Egyptian culture to life with the premiere of its newest contemporary ballet, CLEOPATRA the Last Pharaoh, on Saturday, February 25 and Sunday, February 26, 2023 at the Bijou Theatre.

Deviating from Hollywood’s traditional portrayal of Cleopatra, GO! will explore the mysteries of this young woman and her political battles for dominance over the Ptolemaic Throne. Intertwining Egyptian rituals, mysticism and traditions, Cleopatra is a powerful spectacle with a documentary style storyline based on the rivalry between Cleopatra VII, her half-sister Arsinoe IV and her younger brother, Ptolemy XIII. 

Written and directed by McKee, this large scale, two-act inventive ballet travels between the ancient civilizations of Rome and Egypt and features 75 dancers including professionals, pre-professionals and a youth cast.
