Our Water In The Desert: A Zayed Legacy opera project has officially started its rehearsal schedule!
Following on from the devising stage which took place in June, the core, dance and design companies had their first rehearsal this week.
This included an introduction to the final storyline, design concepts and music which have been developed by the librettist, designer and composer who worked with the children last term. Pupils were excited to see how their original ideas have been incorporated into the opera and with just a month to go before the performances @NYUADArtsCenter, energy levels are high.
This powerful performing arts project, a collaboration with the UAE’s Ministry of Tolerance, promises to be a wonderful experience for everyone involved. Designed to celebrate the Year of Zayed, It is supported by The British Council as part of its legacy programme following its UK/UAE Year of Creative Collaboration 2017 and will be presented in partnership with The Arts Center at NYUAD on 25th and 26th October 2018.
