WKND - - What's Hot -

White Nights in dubai, a nine- day fes­ti­val at dubai Opera and the first mu­si­cal fes­ti­val of its kind in the Mid­dle East — has con­firmed that top opera star Jonas Kauf­mann aka the ‘ New King of Tenors’ will per­form on April 6, 2017, as part of a care­fully cu­rated line- up of the big­gest stars from the world of mu­sic.

Al­ready part of the im­pres­sive ros­ter are mezzo so­prano su­per­star Kather­ine Jenk­ins OBE and Bri­tain’s lead­ing tenor Al­fie Boe, who are slated to head­line the big- ticket event on Thurs­day, March 30, 2017.

Since his sen­sa­tional de­but at the Metropoli­tan Opera in New York in 2006, Kauf­mann has num­bered among the top stars in the op­er­atic world, with in­sid­ers prais­ing him as the most im­por­tant Ger­man tenor since the renowned Fritz Wun­der­lich.

Tickets will be on sale start­ing Oc­to­ber 5, be­gin­ning at dh550 for bronze passes and go­ing up to dh2,500 for VIP passes. For more in­for­ma­tion or to book, visit www. tick­et­mas­ter. ae or www. dubai­opera. com.

your younger self, if you could? En­joy ev­ery mo­ment. Things al­ways turn out how they are meant to be, so pace your­self and en­joy the jour­ney.

If you could go back to any era in time or wit­ness any ma­jor event in his­tory, which one would it be, and why? I would like to go back to back to the 1920s ( be­cause I don’t think I could survive with­out some perks of the mod­ern world, if I went any fur­ther back!). And I would like to have ex­pe­ri­enced the women’s move­ment and been a part of it too.

Your great­est fear. My great­est fear is not being a good per­son. To me, a good per­son means being a good mum, a good friend and fam­ily mem­ber, a good boss/ col­league and part­ner. Being able to treat every­one fairly and see­ing the good in them, and help­ing oth­ers when they need it.
