Description


BBC Proms Dubai 2019 continues on its second night with the BBC Singers at Dubai Opera on Wednesday 20 March 2019.

Conducted by their Chief Conductor, Sofi Jeannin, the BBC Singers showcase some of the most exciting Choral music of the last 100 years in a programme that ranges from Gershwin to Abba, Francis Poulenc to Laura Mvula. 


At the centre of their concert is Poulenc’s Figure humaine – a truly extraordinary, magnificent choral masterpiece written at the height of the Second World War and premiered by the BBC Singers.

It sits alongside works by fellow French composer Maurice Duruflé, and the Choral Dances from Benjamin Britten’s opera Gloriana. 

The second half of their programme is dedicated to the lighter side of the BBC Singers’ repertoire and includes 'Sing to the Moon' by the renowned artist Laura Mvula, herself a featured composer in the 2018 BBC Proms.

The BBC Singers end their programme with choral arrangements of ABBA and the iconic satirical writing of Michael Flanders and Donald Swann.

We are delighted to be joined for part of this programme by choristers from local schools.

Now in its 124th season, the BBC Proms is a much-loved British tradition that aims to bring the best classical music to as wide an audience as possible.

Following the huge success of the inaugural BBC Dubai Proms in 2017 we are delighted this iconic Festival will return to Dubai Opera to be staged over four days from 19 to 22 March 2019.  

The audiences in 2017 were overwhelmingly enthusiastic and welcoming and host BBC Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny will once again lead us through the five concerts of the 2019 BBC Dubai Proms towards the Last Night of the Proms – Dubai style.  

Alongside the main concerts of the BBC Dubai proms runs a wide-ranging programme of outreach and education activities including pre-concert talks, open rehearsals, chamber music coaching and a foyer performance with young musicians, masterclasses, a choral workshop with local Arabic school choirs and the creation of a new ensemble: the Dubai Opera Festival Chorus.  

We look forward to welcoming music lovers of all ages to engage with this programme – and maybe even perform with the DOFC! As in 2017, we are enormously grateful to the British Council for their support in making the learning programme possible.
