(Carriages from 1 hour after the commencement of performance)
This show tells the extraordinary story of Giovanni Batista Belzoni, Italian giant, circus strongman, Regency theatre actor & impresario, creator of optical illusions, hydraulic engineer and - most importantly - Egyptologist. Many of the statues you see in the British Museum’s Egyptian gallery today were brought back to England by Belzoni, including the giant head of Rameses II. This show is performed in its own Egyptian temple theatre, with a uniquely shaped proscenium arch which changes shape.
The show will be presented at Kent MOMI twice, on Friday 7th & Saturday 8th December, at 7:00pm.
Fri 7 Dec, 7:00pm
(Doors open 6:30)
£6 (£5 concessions)
