Concert in Qatar, a message of hope
In honour of the 4th UN Alliances of Civilization Forum, the grand opening hosted by Oscar winner Jeremy Irons, will feature Vangelis’ original three-part Choral Fantasy, inspired by a message of hope. Gert Hof, the world’s greatest Light Artist, will enchant the audience and paint the skies over Doha to the alluring sounds of Vangelis.
The first part, played by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, will feature elements of improvisation mixed with European classical orchestral sequences. The second part will feature famed Soprano Angela Gheorghiu, accompanied by both the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and the Yurlov Moscow State Academic Choir.
The third act brings together beloved Tenorissimo Roberto Alagna and Ms. Gheorghiu for a duet and will then conclude with an encore of Vangelis’ greatest hits. The finale, entitled “Child of Hope,” will be performed by the multi-ethnic Qatar Philharmonic Children’s Choir.
