"...dazzlingly good chamber ensemble…
exuberantly expressive, intimate style…
gorgeously idiomatic playing’

Mozart in Arabic
Opera in Dubai

Three concerts of Mozart arias and ensembles, sung in Arabic from the original translations by Dr Aly Sadek, whose love for Mozart inspired him with the wish to share the joys of Mozart's operas with the Arab speaking world by translating them into Arabic.
Aly Sadek writes: "The ultimate aim of Opera In Arabic is to open the wonderful world of Mozart's operas to the Arabic speaking cultured population by breaking the language barrier and to make these works available to them and to future generations through high quality recordings and performances".

Concerts on 10 and 13 May, 2007
