The capital is going to be alive with the sound of music as Abu Dhabi Classics returns once more with star-studded performances, a celebration of classical composers and internationally-renowned orchestras.
An assemblage of traditional and classical musicians from across the Arab world and Europe are set to descend on the capital from January 28th to 7th February.
The Abu Dhabi Classics, under the patronage of HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, promises concertgoers a musically packed programme that includes a one-of-a-kind ballet performance and acclaimed soloists.
The Classics kicks off at the Cultural Foundation with ‘Bach Concertos for 2, 3 and 4 Pianos’ by David Fray and Friends.
Heading over from the Levant, Lebanese soprano singer Magida El Roumi will headline the event at the du Arena on 7th along with her 70-piece orchestra.
Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova will dance her way on stage on 31st January, also at the Cultural Centre. On 1st and 6th February respectively, there will be a solo performance by French classical pianist Lise de la Salle, while rising Egyptian singer Sanaa Nabil – the great granddaughter of Oum Koulthoum’s sister – heads to the stage.
On 5th February at du Arena the Germans will also be heading to the stage in the guise of the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra.
They will celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven by performing the German composer’s most celebrated work, the 9th Symphony.
