Jebel Jais to host the UAE's highest musical event
Taking musical performances to new heights, Jebel Jais, the UAE's tallest peak, will host the highest concert in the country this October, when Vivaldianno - City of Mirrors descends on the mountains of Ras Al Khaimah.
Devised by award-winning Czech musician and film composer, Michal Dvorák, Vivaldianno - City of Mirrors fuses the Baroque masterpieces and compositions of Antonio Vivaldi with 3D visual effects and light shows, propelled by contemporary energy.
The one-off event, taking place on October 27 and set at 1600 metres above sea level, will assemble a large orchestra to cover classical and art-rock instrumentation on a specially-constructed mountain stage. Featuring large-format projections in front of and behind the performance areas, the show will boast a complex and sophisticated light design utilising cutting-edge technologies to create an unequalled 3D musical experience. The cast of renowned musicians from all over the world will be supported by complex imagery and choreography, breathing new life and colour into masterpieces including The Four Seasons.
"We are retaining the original score while adding modern instruments the way Antonio himself might have included them. The show strives to enforce and emphasise the original music in a contemporary means of expression," Dvorák noted.
Tickets for the one-off performance start from Dhs300 and are available through Virgin Tickets, and Platinum List.
Vivaldianno ticket holders going to Jebel Jais can reach the concert via free shuttle buses from Ras Al Khaimah Convention Centre on Marjan Island, Al Hamra Convention Centre and Hilton Garden Inn, Ras Al Khaimah. There will be two buses in each venue leaving at 4pm and 4.30pm.
