Opera for Peace Ambassador Zeina Barhoum – Vogue Arabia feature

10th November 2019

Opera for Peace Ambassador was featured in the October edition of Vogue Arabia, highlighting her many operatic and charitable projects:

“The soprano praises her mother for always encouraging her. “She never said, ‘You can’t do that because you’re already doing this.’ If I wanted to get into the jewelry world, she said go for it. While others would warn it was too much. I always find myself a bit more when I talk to her. She assures me that I am doing the right thing.” For Barhoum, this means elevating others. “With the Office of the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights (OUNCHR), we will involve two refugees as assistant tailors to our Italian costume designer who will make fitting adjustments in Amman,” the soprano says. She will also coordinate with OUNHCR, World Food Programme, and SOS Children’s Villages to offer invitations to refugees and orphans to attend the opera. The soprano was recently appointed an ambassador of the global project Opera for Peace.”
