“The Middle Eastern and Arabic people are so generous in their expression and dedicated to excellence and quality. These are the qualities to build the best operas. As I always say: When there is a will, there is a way! And we are all now moving forward and upward, passing any virtual differences. Thanks to His Majesty Mohammed bin Zayed (M.B.Z), the Emiratis are now celebrating their diversity and the richness of their common knowledge. I’m so proud to perform there again!” said Serero.
