Sound and Light Show
Duration: 1 Hour
Travellers have been drawn to Egypt for centuries, fascinated by the country’s ancient history and majestic archaeological wonders such as pyramids, temples, tombs and mosques. This unique, one-hour Sound and Light Show will enable you to step back in time and enjoy a spectacular presentation of the historical events that took place in Egypt thousands of years ago. Prepare for a dazzling extravaganza you won’t forget. This magical evening will be one of the highlights of your holiday in Egypt.
Music, storytelling, modern sound technology and dramatic lighting bring the ancient Pyramids of Giza to life in this memorable evening show, which will take you back through history to a time when the powerful Egyptians ruled the kingdom. The story is narrated by the mystical Sphinx itself as the amazing history of ancient Egypt is revealed, enhanced by multicolour lighting effects and stunning imagery projected against the backdrop of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the largest of three pyramids located on the Giza Plateau on the outskirts of Cairo.
The sacred Great Sphinx statue has the regal head of a human and the body of a lion, and dates back to about 2500 B.C. Facing the rising sun, it is believed to have been the vigilant guardian of the city of the dead (tombs of the Valley of the Kings) for thousands of years. This majestic monument is a national symbol of Egypt and a testament to the grand scale of ancient Egyptian culture and art, as is the Great Pyramid which is the only remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The main part of the show depicts the story of the construction of the pyramids and relates the history of great figures of ancient Egypt, including famous pharaohs and queens such as Thutmosis IV, Akhenaten, Queen Nefertiti and Tutankhamun. This show will draw you back to ancient times as if you were there.
If you haven’t already visited the pyramids during your trip, this is an awe-inspiring introduction. You won’t fail to be amazed by the sight of this dazzling light show as darkness descends, against the unforgettable backdrop of the illuminated Great Sphinx and Pyramids. Shows are held in many different languages, including English, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Arabic. The desert can be quite cold in the evenings so visitors are advised to bring a jumper for warmth.
