Jebel Jais, Ras al Khaimah hosts UAE’s highest ever musical event

Jebel Jais, the UAE’s tallest peak, hosted the highest concert in the country on Friday 27th October 2017, when award-winning Czech musician and film composer Michal Dvořák brought the global musical sensation Vivaldianno – City of Mirrors - to the mountains of Ras Al Khaimah.

More than 1200 guests attended the event which is part of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority’s (RAKTDA) goal of developing lifestyle entertainment across the emirate. Set at 1,600 meters above sea level, the unique event was a dazzling live performance and was attended by His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah and other dignitaries.

“The sold-out event indicates that people in the UAE and outside have an appetite for these kind of events in the unique setting of Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest peak,” commented Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority. “This is the first of many such events to come. We chose Vivaldianno because it has a compelling story, steeped in history. We intend to bring events that resonate with deep history and culture – as that is one of the key pillars of our destination brand.”
