Celebrations have begun to mark Algeria’s fifty years of independence from its colonial master, France.

A giant musical, inspired by the north African country’s history, kicked off what will be a year of events.

Some 800 actors, dancers and musicians were involved in the show, dedicated to Algeria’s fight against French occupation. The performance took place in the seaside resort of Sidi Fredji, where French troops first landed in 1830.
