The Spring Culture Festival

The 2024 edition of the Bahrain Spring Culture Festival is set to host a unique musical show, "Oum Kalthoum and the Golden Age," directly from London. Orchestrated by producer and writer Mona Khashoggi, the show had its successful run at London's Palladium.

Scheduled for January 25 and 26, 2024, at the Bahrain National Theater, the show pays tribute to artistic legends like Mohamed El Qasabgi, Mohamed Abdel Wahab, Tahiya Karioka, and Oum Kalthoum. Syrian opera singer Lubna Al Quntar will perform Oum Kalthoum's iconic songs, portraying her journey from humble beginnings to becoming the Middle East's star.

The festival, supported by various Bahraini cultural institutions and strategic sponsors like the Bahrain Economic Development Council, will feature Jordanian artist Hani Dehshan, portraying multiple characters including Mohamed El Qasabgi and Mohamed Abdel Wahab.
