Opening the new Abu Dhabi Classics 2017-2018 Season with a Gala Concert in Al Jahili Fort (Al Ain), the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra will play one of Beethoven’s most popular Symphonies: the 4th Symphony, written in 1806. For one of the fathers of the Romanic movement in music, German composer Robert Schumann, this Symphony was also, the “most romantic” of Beethoven’s Symphonic works. Completing the evening in Al Jahili Fort will also be the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto composed in 1868, a work widely influenced by the same Robert Schumann and its interest in folk music. Also on the programme for the evening, the Siegfied-Idyll, the Symphonic Poem Richard Wagner offered his wife Cosima for the birth of their son Siegfried in 1869.

The Polish National Opera comes to Dubai Opera to deliver a powerful performance of the famous opera, Eugene Onegin.
The story follows a young, wealthy protagonist, Onegin, whose hubris gets him into trouble. After catching the eye of the charming Tatyana, he rejects her declaration of love, citing that he is ill-suited for marriage.
At a party several months later, feeling bored and wanting to stir things up, he decides to dance with Tatyana’s sister, in order to make her fiancé- Onegin’s best friend- jealous. This leads to a duel with dire consequences. Onegin leaves, only to return to St. Petersburg several years later to a situation that plays to a completely different tune.
This masterful opera is one of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s most famous. Inspired by the novel of another celebrated Russian figure, Alexander Pushkin, both the story line and the score reflect the depths of Russian society in the early 19th century. The opera is in Russian with English subtitles.
Ticket Price: Starting At 350.00 AED
