'Legacy of Our Ancestors': Stage set for UAE's big National Day show
The show will take the audience on a vivid journey of the UAE's heritage through a series of stories.
The official 48th National Day Celebrations will be held on December 2, 2019, under the patronage of the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The Organising Committee of the Official UAE National Day confirmed that the preparations for the celebration have been completed. The celebration will be centred around a spectacular theatrical production titled 'Legacy of Our Ancestors'.
The show will be staged on a scale not previously seen in the UAE with more than 5,000 experts from 70 countries coming together to shape this unmissable production.
The show will take the audience on a vivid journey of the UAE's heritage through a series of stories that highlight values of courage, determination, generosity, and tolerance, which have been long embedded in the UAE's national and social fabric and have been passed down through generations.
The epic scale of this production has been brought to life by the efforts of many dedicated individuals coming from diverse backgrounds and cultures, a true reflection of co-existence and tolerance which are key components of the UAE's social inclusion, with more than 200 nationalities living in harmony.
Showing the generous and welcoming Emirati identity, this year's celebration will welcome 20,000 attendees, both citizens and residents, who will together express their love and pride for the UAE.
The organising committee today announced the theatrical spectacle is officially sold out. However, the committee confirmed that with strong interest in the show, citizens and residents who missed out on securing their seats at Zayed Sports City Stadium, can still be a part of the celebrations at a special screening at Umm Al Emarat Park.
