Umm Kulthum To Perform Again This Weekend At The Dubai Opera House

Umm Kulthum fans are invited to attend a nostalgic ‘concert’ hosted by Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) at the Dubai Opera House.

Using state-of-the-art technology by New Dimension Productions (NDP) – the same company responsible for creating the holograph of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan giving his speech back in 2018 – music lovers can witness the Egyptian legend perform Al Atlal again by attending one of four performances on August 6-8.

"We made great efforts to prepare and develop the content of this concert, especially since the preparation of the Umm Kulthum material required long hours during which a team of 18 experts worked to develop the hologram and visual effects, in collaboration with a team of 30 technicians who set up the hologram equipment on-site," founder and CEO of NDP Hasan Hina said.

In cooperation with Dubai Opera and its partners, the opera house is keen to adopt to the highest safety and health measures, which will include disinfection and social distancing practices during the concert to ensure the health and safety of all the guests and staff. Such measures include extensive sterilization, adherence to social distancing in terms of seat placement, and other other precautionary procedures.

Ticket prices start at Dhs295. For more information please visit dubaiopera.com
