Enjoy an evening of music and 3D magic in the mountains this October when award-winning Czech musician and film composer Michal Dvorak’s Vivaldianno – City of Mirrors comes to the UAE, set at 1,600 metres above sea level.

The show, which meshes the Baroque masterpieces and compositions of Antonio Vivaldi with 3D light and visual effects, runs on October 27 at a specially designed stage on Jebel Jais, the UAE’s tallest peak.

“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,” said the composer. Tickets for the one-off performance start at Dh300.
