United Arab Emirates – French-Emirati Cultural Program (2016)

France and the United Arab Emirates are inaugurating a French-Emirati Cultural Program to celebrate the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by architect Jean Nouvel, in late 2016.

This cultural season, reflecting the wish for openness and dialogue, will begin on March 16 in Manarat Al Saadiyat (Abu Dhabi).

The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester conducted by Christoph Eschenbach will perform two original musical creations, one by Emirati soloist Faisal Al Saari, and one by French composer Français Bruno Mantovani, featuring cellist Gautier Capuçon.

This extraordinary concert reflects the shared ambition of France and the United Arab Emirates to strengthen their strategic partnership.
