The Ahmadi Music Group present a full-staged production with full symphony orchestra. One of very few operas set in the Arab world. A story of the French efforts in Morocco around 1910 to supress a rebellion by a band of desert outlaws called the Riffs. The stern General Birabeau is sent from France to take charge of the combat; he is impatient that his son is not interested in soldiery. Only at the end does he realise that his son, Pierre, is the dashing Red Shadow, leader of the Riffs.

Production will be staged at the wonderful new Performing Arts Centre at The English School, Salmiya.
