Russian State Opera is coming to Dubai Opera to delight you with Opera, Aida. The brand-new production guarantees to dazzle you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes.

Verdi brings the ancient Egypt on stage with evolving love story at the backdrop of war. The princess of Ethiopia (Aida) falls in love with the Egyptian General (Radames) and he is also besotted by her. Radames is chosen to lead the war with Ethiopia by the king and Aida is left to choose between her lover or her father and her country.

Aida is a gripping love story that will keep you on the edge of your seats until the very end.

Aria such as ‘Se quel Guerrier io fossi!’ sung by Radames in the first act is one of the most famous arias of the operatic world. The most powerful melody comes in the second part of the Opera in the form of Triumphal March to highlight victory and triumph.

A deeply moving opera overflowing with emotion and containing moments of despair and uncertainty. Aida is an unforgettable, inspiring experience.

After his sold-out concert in Dubai in 2018, Iyad Rimawi is back in Dubai to perform for the first time at Dubai Opera. A musically genius composer, Rimawi, was born and raised in Damascus, Syria.

Rimawi has created some very unforgettable themes that have aptly gained him the title of one of the most talented Arab composers of contemporary times.

He was the first-ever Arab artist to sign with SONY Music Middle East in 2012, for his first solo album, ‘Tales from Damascus’. The album was a beautiful compilation of some of his best title themes and songs and instantly reached number 2 in the VIRGIN megastores Middle East chart.

His second solo album, ‘Silence in Syria’ (released in 2016), went straight to the number one spot in VIRGIN Middle East Chart. The album held its number one position for 3 months in a row, an exceptional event in the Arab music scene. His third album, ‘Damascus Now’, achieved the same success as his previous two albums.
