Open-air Theatre

Festival goers were able to see a huge variety of traditional performances around the festival and on the open-air theatre stage.

At special 40-minute shows each evening, traditional Emirati performances celebrated the city’s culture and history with traditional music, dance, poetry woven together with light and projection.

This very special locally produced show brought together talent from across the Emirates. Selected through an intensive auditioning process, the local helped to create a dramatic theatrical production
