Mahmoud Reda, Farida Fahmy and the Reda Troupe (1963)

Mahmoud Reda, Farida Fahmy and the Reda Troupe perform in a scene from the 1963 film “Agazet nos el Sana” (Mid Year Holiday/Vacation أجازة نص السنة.). The film also starred Egyptian actress Magda and Abdel Menam Ibrahim.

Mahmoud Reda is the co-founder, along with his brother Ali and Farida Fahmy, of the Reda Troupe who bought folkloric Egyptian dances onto the stage where they could be seen and appreciated by a wider audience.  In his younger days, Reda was a gymnast representing Egypt in the 1952 Helsinki Summer Olympics.
