Chantal: A Night at the Pyramids
On the night of September 7, 2007, international singer/songwriter Chantal Chamandy, made history by becoming the first person ever to be granted permission to perform a taped concert at the base of The Pyramids on the Giza plateau in Egypt. The night was especially important for the Egyptian-born Chamandy, currently based in Montreal, as she returned to her birthplace to deliver a positive portrayal of middle-eastern culture. Chamandy performed alongside the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, dancers from the Egyptian National Ballet Company and Tanoura dancers in front of a capacity audience of 5,000 people. In addition, acclaimed director Gerard Pullicino (Beyonce, Madonna, Celine Dion), choreographer Genevieve Dorion-Coupal (The Beatles' "Love" by Cirque du Soleil) and set designer Guy St-Amour (also from Cirque du Soleil) added their unique style to this special performance.

The first and primary disc is the concert performed on the Giza Plateau directly in front of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid. The evening is advertised as a magical and mystical event and with the awe inspiring Sphinx all aglow gazing into the camera during the performance how could it be anything but?
However Chantal has more than just the enchanting setting to offer her audience. She is also a talented singer/songwriter/performer. Her lyrics, music and movements are exotic, sensual and alluring, no doubt magnified by the fact that she's quite attractive. I'm not sure who or what I spent the most time staring at, her or the timeless sandstone entity peering over her shoulder.
There's a lot of entertainment value in `Chantal: A Night at the Pyramids'. Chantal herself, her wonderful dance ensemble from Montreal, local Egyptian dancers recruited just days before the performance, the Cairo Symphony and more. An enjoyable evening of entertainment awaits the viewer in the timeless "Land of the Pharaohs!"
