    Expo 2020 introduces young minds to the joys of the operatic world

    Music-based educational programmes will see school students meet experts, form choirs and more as Expo prepares to launch the UAE’s first opera

    Expo 2020 Dubai is launching a series of music-based educational programmes to introduce UAE schoolchildren and their teachers to the wonderful world of opera.

    The initiative is inspired by Al Wasl, the UAE’s first opera which Expo will debut in October 2020 to coincide with the start of the World’s Greatest Show. Performed in Arabic and English, the landmark production is set to feature more than 100 artists and musicians.

    The first programme, aimed at primary school students and teachers, will begin in October 2019 with a series of interactive workshops designed in collaboration with the world-renowned Welsh National Opera, which will perform Al Wasl during Expo 2020 Dubai.

    Children will have the opportunity to meet experts in choral performance, drama, storytelling and theatre production, while teachers will learn skills and techniques to make singing easy, interactive and fun.

    Another programme, known as ‘Nasheed Al Wasl’ (which means ‘Al Wasl Song’ in English), will bring together groups of 250 primary and secondary pupils from multiple schools to form choirs that will sing onstage at Expo 2020.

    In a series of 30-minute shows, the student choirs will perform extracts from Al Wasl opera, accompanied by a professional orchestra. The shows will premiere in November 2020 and run throughout Expo 2020.

    Al Wasl opera will celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of the UAE, its impressive achievements to date and its aspirations for the future. Award-winning composer Mohammed Fairouz and author and librettist Maha Gargash, both UAE nationals, will provide the music and dialogue respectively for the opera, whose name means ‘the connection’ in Arabic.

    This artistic project will further enhance the UAE's international standing and enrich its cultural heritage for future generations.
