ROME, APRIL 07 – The voice of Andrea Bocelli, the most loved Italian tenor in the world. And the centuries-old wonder of Hegra, the first UNESCO site in Saudi Arabia, which will soon welcome visitors from all over the world for the first time. It is the world premiere concert event that will bring Bocelli on April 8 to AlUla, which only 300 people will be able to attend live, but which will be broadcast for free in live streaming on the maestro’s YouTube channel for millions of fans all over the world (at 9 pm for Italy). For Bocelli it is the third consecutive year at AlUla, after having already performed in two editions of the Winter at Tantora festival. The new event now promises to be an unmissable celebration of cultural heritage, music and optimism given the global pandemic. The Nabataean tombs of the ancient city of Hegra will give a spectacular scenography to the concert, the first time that the site is used for a musical event of this level. With a program yet to be announced, Andrea Bocelli is accompanied by the musicians of the Arabian Philharmonic with the participation of Loren Allred, Matteo Bocelli and soprano Francesca Maionchi with Eugene Kohn on the piano. A surprise guest is also expected, which will be revealed tomorrow. Hegra, built by the Nabataeans in the 1st century BC, is an ancient city in the desert that houses thousands of tombs carved into the sandstone rock, of which at least one hundred show finely crafted carved facades, signed by skilled Nabataean artisans (Info: experiencealula.com) .
