The Arab world’s “Queen” of pop, Ahlam performed a mix of her popular hits and evergreen classics, as the first Arabic female singer at Dubai Opera on Thursday.
The Emirati star made her mark on the Arab music scene by presenting a successful concert at one of the most famous opera venues in the Middle East.
Ahlam expressed her happiness as she sang her popular song “Makani.”
The audience applauded and sang with her as she performed one famous song after another, including “Aghla Insan,” “Mistaghrib” and “La Qalbi.”
The concert was one of the most awaited for thousands of her fans who came from all over the UAE as well as other Gulf countries to see their star perform. Ahlam expressed her appreciation for her fans, saying that she feels she is on cloud nine.
Elated fans rushed to the stage to greet and take selfies with Ahlam. “I shook the queen’s hands, I’m so fortunate,” said one fan.
Located in Downtown Dubai, Dubai Opera is the radiant center of culture and arts in Dubai and the shining pearl of The Opera District. After three years of construction, the $330 million concert venue officially opened its doors late last year.
With its unique 2000-seat multi-format theater, Dubai Opera is an international destination for performing arts and world-class entertainment productions.
