Dvorak’s Rusalka coming to Meydan IMAX

So… Little diva is super excited again for her next Opera showing. The fabulous Meydan Theatre presents the Met Opera’s fifth installment, Dvořák’s sumptuously melodic opera, will be held tomorrow February 23rd. 

It is now a mother daughter ritual to venture to the Meydan IMAX on a week day, have sinful food and indulge in the world’s best Opera in screen.

Renée Fleming sings her first Live in HD performance of one of her signature roles, the lovelorn mermaid Rusalka, in Dvořák’s sumptuously melodic opera. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts a cast that also includes Piotr Beczala as the handsome Prince Rusalka yearns to love; Dolora Zajick as the cackling swamp witch Ježibaba; Emily Magee as the Foreign Princess, Rusalka’s rival; and John Relyea as Rusalka’s father, the Water Sprite. “

We certainly can’t wait. The show begins at 7.30pm. We normally get there 30 minutes earlier to have snacks and drinks, get to the seats. Show ends at 11.30 and its the best few hours you will spend for entertainment. See you there!
STUDENTS: AED 125.00 – One ticket (complimentary drinks)

Zandonai’s Francesca Da Rimini @MeydanIMAX

Its been weeks since Tasha and I went to see the a MET Opera production….it was Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda so news that another MET production is coming to IMAX was music to our ears. This time it’s Zandonai’s ‘Francesca Da Rimini’. The good thing is that both Tash and I don’t know the storyline or have read any reviews so this will be a total surprise and what’s great is that we will once see it on the biggest screen in Dubai at Meydan Imax. I reckon the best thing I’ve done since I met Afsana is get registered for updates via email on what’s happening at IMAX….I keep getting their latest schedules and my viewing pleasure has improved ten-fold.

The next MET Opera is at 7pm on the 25th of March. It’s perfect timing as I usually leave the office at Media City at 6pm and arrive  at Meydan IMAX just in time to meet Tash, buy popcorn and see the show…plus indulge in their amazing oreo cake that is sinfully delicious and takes you to heaven for the evening.

As I keep talking endlessly about how much I enjoy the MET shows, ticket costs for everyone who makes a booking and say’s ‘Fijianchick’ get AED 50/- off their tickets. So…if you like opera and like to see the show, mention my blog and get the tickets for AED100/- instead of AED150/-. Enjoy!
