Held in commemoration of Arab Tourism Day, one of the most important theatrical productions of the world "Antar & Abla" will perform at the Bahrain National Theatre. Since its premiere in July 2016 in Beirut, this historical opera produced by Opera Lebanon received widespread popularity and acclaim from the audience as a showcase of pre-Islamic literature and poetry, Arab heritage, and timeless stories which address important social and human issues and concepts such as discrimination, racism, honor, and heroism through unforgettable characters in exceptional circumstances.

The production is considered a watershed moment in the region's opera scene as it masterfully combined original symphonic music with the poetic aesthetics of the Arabic language and techniques used specifically in singing opera in Arabic, all of which create a complete and immpresive artistic experience.
