opera

Opera Without Words at Dubai Opera

If you’re in for a unique opera experience, we’ve got just the one for you! Bring the fam over for an opera performance without human voice but an orchestra which provides the pulse that makes an opera breathe. The greatest composers have always written as well for instruments as for voices. In the process they have created magnificent orchestral pieces that have taken on a life of their own and this collection brings together Italian Opera’s most beautiful. Who says weekday evenings can’t be classy?

When: Monday, 5 September (8pm)
Where: Dubai Opera
How much: From AED 300, get your tickets here

YAP Junior is for students 9-12 years old and YAP Senior is for students aged 13-15. Within the theme of places, kiddos may explore the meaning of place on a personal level, for a specific group or for the human race in general. This topic may be approached on a deeply philosophical level, from a practical and pragmatic point of view or purely on the basis of aesthetics. thejamjar studio brings art alive in a relaxed environment, providing a platform for little artists to unleash their creativity on canvas.
