The majestic Arch Rock area of Madakheel in AlUla

Saudi Arabia’s AlUla is set to host on Friday “Symphony under the Stars,” a musical performance in the majestic Arch Rock area of Madakheel.

The performance will star Italian pianist and composer, Dardust, who is well-known for combining the minimalist piano world with European influenced visual effects.

In this performance, the majestic Arch Rock is the natural theater for the cutting-edge concert, creating a seamless connection between natural heritage, stars and an astonishing lighting design.

Dardust has created a new composition just for the event, dedicated to the spectacular skies of AlUla.

The set design is conceived as a natural expansion of the Arch Rock, inviting the audience to look up at the sky blanketed with stars.

Located in an elegant stage set in the center of the arch, the musicians produce a dialogue between landscape and night-sky, classical music and visual effects.
