Bahrain Authority for Culture & Antiquities has announced that the “Epic of Gilgamesh” concert tickets are on sale now.

The evening of music maestro will be Alain Joutar, accompanied by the Notre-Dame University Choir – Louaizé, Watarieyet Music Band, Pari and Mohammad Bin Faris Music Band, Bahrain. Tickets are available at Virgin Megastore City Center or via its website.
