Now in its 124th season, the BBC Proms is a much-loved British tradition that aims to bring the best classical music to as wide an audience as possible.  Following the huge success of the inaugural BBC Dubai Proms in 2017 we are delighted this iconic Festival will return to Dubai Opera to be staged over four days from 19 to 22 March 2019.  

The audiences in 2017 were overwhelmingly enthusiastic and welcoming and host BBC Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny will once again lead us through the five concerts of the 2019 BBC Dubai Proms towards the Last Night of the Proms – Dubai style.  

Alongside the main concerts of the BBC Dubai proms runs a wide-ranging programme of outreach and education activities including pre-concert talks, open rehearsals, chamber music coaching and a foyer performance with young musicians, masterclasses, a choral workshop with local Arabic school choirs and the creation of a new ensemble: the Dubai Opera Festival Chorus.  We look forward to welcoming music lovers of all ages to engage with this programme – and maybe even perform with the DOFC! As in 2017, we are enormously grateful to the British Council for their support in making the learning programme possible.

Prom 1 – Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and Romeo & Juliet

BBC Proms Dubai 2019 opens with a short, punchy world premiere – Tmesis – from the exciting British composer Bushra ElTurk, drawing on her Lebanese roots for its sound world.

The fast-rising British conductor Ben Gernon is then joined by violinist Karen Gomyo in Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto.  Karen is truly a world artist – born in Japan, raised in Canada, living in Berlin, she has already performed with many of the world’s top orchestras and we are delighted to welcome her to Dubai for her BBC Symphony Orchestra debut.

The second half of this opening concert features music from one of the twentieth century’s greatest and best-loved ballets, Romeo and Juliet by Sergei Prokofiev.
