The private event will take place at 6 PM at the Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum in front of the United Nations delegations.
Attendees can expect to hear four songs from Akhenaten: The Musical: "You Are in Egypt," "Coronation," "Stones of Times" and "O My Son." Ben Boecker will conduct.
The gala night will be directed by Hisham Abdel Khalek.
Akhenaten the Musical features a book by Khalek, lyrics by ￼Mohamed Metwally and music by Hesham Nazih; it is produced by Olivier Delesse, Khalek, Saad Bin Mohammed, N’Kenge Inc. and Jason Hewitt. The new musical, according to press notes, concerns "Queen-Ti, Akhenaten’s mother, who is distraught over her son’s love for Nefertiti and outrageous idealism for a new country."
