A thousand years of culture will be brought to life through the Al Wasl Opera. Sung in English, audiences will be captivated by a story centred on unity and connectivity. Since time immemorial, our values have connected us, binding the UAE as a nation and a connector between civilisations. This continues to be the thrust of our progress into the future and will be revealed to the audience through the art of storytelling. The two-hour performances will let you experience the true spirit of connection.
UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General of Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau
“We wanted to create something new for Expo 2020 Dubai that reflects the dynamic, diverse and tolerant nature of contemporary UAE and our deep-rooted culture and heritage. A landmark opera, which supports the UAE’s flourishing arts industry, is the perfect way for us to do this.”
