Within an initiative by the Saudi Ministry of Culture, the Riyadh Front is hosting musical evenings and theatrical and opera performances, featuring a number of contemporary artists and unique creative experiences.
The ministry is organizing a variety of artistic and musical events and cultural activities, from March 20-31, under the Quality of Life Program, one of the projects of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
The events include a 3-D hologram display of a concert by famed artist Whitney Houston. The show embodies a glimpse of her life and her most important artistic contribution.
The events will also see a performance by one of the world’s greatest opera composers, Jose Carreras, in addition to an Arab Philharmonic Music evening with Syrian artist Rasha Rizk, who will be accompanied by 46 musicians from the International Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Algerian Maestro Amine Koueider, in a hall that can accommodate more than 1,400 people.
Moreover, the culture square of the Riyadh Front will also host two of the most prominent works of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky; the “Swan Lake” ballet and “The Nutcracker” that was first performed in 1892.
Visitors will have a unique experience in watching musical and dance performances, including “Inspiration” and “The Jazz Story,” as well as a number of Broadway musicals.
The Riyadh Front events come as part of a program by the Ministry of Culture to enrich the local scene with diverse artistic content, and to enhance the Kingdom’s cultural life.
The initiative aims to present various creative and unique experiences to the widest segment of the public, thus raising the level of creative dialogue and exchange among fans of arts and culture in the Kingdom.
