Global Connections

14th May 2020

Opera for Peace’s latest creative initiative is called “Global Connections,” which will associate exceptional collaborators with our worldwide mission. Our Affiliate Artist, Sawsan Al-Bahiti, soprano, is the first opera singer from Saudi Arabia, whose artistic evolution we will support through access to our network.


Opera for Peace are committed to developing and promoting opera in the Arabic language, and have just confirmed a long-term collaboration with Iraqi composer Qoutayba Ahmed Neaimi, and Belgian Librettist Judith Adler de Oliveira.


Their future projects include the following works: Sables (Sands) ~ a bilingual opera with a Franco-Arabic libretto around the encounter between Occident and the Middle East.


Confluences ~ a vibrant musical tribute to the founding civilisations of the Middle Eastern and Occidental worlds, and both a homage to the victims of intolerance, and an apology for peace and mutual understanding. The world premiere is announced to take place at the Boulez Saal in Berlin, later in 2020. 


As part of the program celebrity fashion stylist Harold James will empower our Emerging Artists uncovering their inner beauty through bespoke advisement on their personal style and branding. View his website & list of clients here:
