The opening of Louvre Abu Dhabi is set to be a grand affair with four days of celebrations, Gulf News reported. These festivities will begin soon after the museum opens to the public on November 11.
An eclectic group of French world music artists are coming to Abu Dhabi to celebrate the opening of the Louvre. Ibrahim Maalouf, -M-, Fatoumata Diawara and Totó la Momposina will perform in the precincts of the museum, with every artist assigned to headline a night in a live concert series that will run until November 14.
“Creativity, cross-cultural understanding and humanity’s innate fascination with discovering new ideas and traditions from around the world are at the heart of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s ethos and collections,” said Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Sadly, however, the event — of course — has sold out. But worry not, there just might be one way to score some tickets. According to the event’s website, head to the Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saturday and buy the ticket in person, but bear in mind that priority for valet parking and other services will be given to those with online tickets.
WE SAID THIS: Good luck, everyone.
