Al Ain to host Italian Opera on Wed, 29th April

Orchestra Accademia Teatro alla Scala photoshootThis Wednesday the Garden City welcomes the Orchestra Accademia Teatro alla Scala. The orchestra will be conducted by the renowned Giuseppe Finzi. This concert is one of the prestigious “Abu Dhabi Classics” series, which has brought a string of world class performances of classical music to the U.A.E. during the last 6 months.

It was originally envisaged that the venue for this performance by the orchestra from Milan would be Al Ain’s  Al Jaheli Fort, which hosted the orchestras from Birmingham, England last December, and from Dresden, Germany in February. However, this latest event has been transferred from the fort to the Great Hall in the UAE University’s striking Crescent Building.

The orchestra’s Scala Brass Quintet will be performing and presenting especially for the benefit of local school and college students in the same Great Hall at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, 29th April. This will be an opportunity which Al Ain’s music teachers will no doubt want to exploit to the full.
