Expo 2020 Dubai is launching a landmark opera, in collaboration with Welsh National Opera (WNO) that honours thousands of years of UAE history, its achievements to date and its aspirations for the future.
Vibrantly bringing to life the story of the UAE through the hopes, dreams and values of its people, Al Wasl Opera’s premiere run takes place at Dubai Opera from 16-19 December, making it the perfect opportunity to celebrate the nation’s remarkable 50-year journey of accomplishments through a unique artistic showcase.
Showing on four nights only, tickets are now available for this UAE cultural milestone, which features more than 100 artists and musicians, as well as a production team of 70 professionals. Composed by Mohammed Fairouz, co-authored and written by Maha Gargash, directed by Sir David Pountney and conducted by Justin Brown, Al Wasl Opera’s inspiring tale of unity, collaboration and innovation also offers a wonderful Christmas and seasonal treat.
Al Wasl Opera will be presented in English, with a runtime of 120 minutes, including one intermission. Tickets start from AED300 ($82) and are available from the Dubai Opera website. – TradeArabia News Service
