Vivaldianno city of mirrors, Jebal Jais
Capturing the Magic of Vivaldianno on Jebel Jais: A Night of Musical Elevation
In collaboration with First & Ten Productions, I had the extraordinary opportunity to photograph the Vivaldianno concert, a modern rendition of Antonio Vivaldi’s works, at Jebel Jais – the tallest mountain in the UAE. This event, hailed as ‘Vivaldianno — City of Mirrors’, brought a unique musical experience to the majestic mountains of Ras Al Khaimah.
The concert, set against the breath-taking backdrop of Jebel Jais, was more than just a musical event; it was a celebration of classical music, innovation, and natural beauty. The sold-out show, with a capacity of 1,200, not only marked itself as the highest concert venue in the UAE but also as an unforgettable night in the annals of musical performances in the region.
Classical music enthusiasts from all over the UAE gathered for this spectacular event. The evening was further graced by the presence of His Highness Shaikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, along with other dignitaries, adding to the grandeur of the occasion.
As a photographer, capturing the essence of this event was both a challenge and a delight. The fusion of Vivaldi's timeless compositions with modern interpretations, set in such an awe-inspiring location, created a tableau of visuals that were as stirring as the music itself. The images from this night not only showcase the enchantment of the concert but also the communal spirit it evoked, making it a night to remember for all who attended.
