at Dubai Opera | Downtown Dubai

Arts Free Event International Artist One-Off Event Art Exhibition

Description


50 For 50 featuring Ella Spira MBE at Dubai Opera from 29 November to 14 December 2021.

This winter 2021, Dubai Opera will host 50 For 50, an immersive, multi-media exhibition featuring 50 landscape paintings of the UAE by Ella Spira MBE, who resides between Dubai and London.

The art series, painted by Spira, a Grammy-nominated composer and painter, is a legacy honouring the United Arab Emirates 50 years of formation, embracing its rich history, natural beauty and unique achievements.

Produced by innovative art production company Sisters Grimm, 50 For 50 is the culmination of Spira’s travels across the UAE, with the paintings created in situ over the past 18 months.

The series depicts the story of a land which has not only inspired unity and collaboration within its community but has also been dramatically transformed by industry.

The 50 For 50 experience culminates with the world premiere screening of the Sisters Grimm film, ‘Daughters of the Wind Overture’, which features all 50 paintings sharing Dubai Opera’s Main Stage alongside former Royal Ballet ballerina Pietra De Mello-Pittman, co-founder of Sisters Grimm, and singers DB Gad (50 FOR 50 co-composer) and Madyan Hamza, singing in Arabic and English.

With the aim of showcasing a hidden side of the UAE, 50 For 50 will tour internationally following its premiere in Dubai, including to London and New York.

Recognized as internationalists, Ella and Pietra were awarded MBE’s by His Royal Highness Prince Charles at Windsor Castle this month for Services to International Trade and the Creative Industry.

Ella Spira’s work includes award-winning, world-touring live musical theatre productions featured at London’s Royal Variety Performance, Hampton Court Palace and Royal Albert Hall and performed in front of the Royal Family, as well as shows that have been acclaimed across the globe.

Timings:
29 November to 14 December 2021 from 10am to 10pm.
