Promoting the Art of Opera in Jordan through Amman Opera Festival

Jordanian Soprano and founder Zeina Barhoum holds a Workshop at the Headquarters of AOF partner National Express


Within the scope of activities held by the Amman Opera Festival (AOF) in 2018, Jordanian soprano Zeina Barhoum is going to hold a workshop about opera on Saturday, August 11 from 12:30 PM till 2:30 PM at the headquarters of National Express in Jordan at its roof garden. Open to the public, the workshop aims to give attendees an idea about opera, opera in Jordan and a brief about the performance of La Bohème this September and what should the audience expect.

Operating in Jordan since 1992, National Express is a credit card company that prides itself in being the only national card using the Jordan Dinar for all settlement purposes.

Most recently, Barhoum's performance of Verdi's La Traviata was screened at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai, within the Roxy Culture event. In December 2018, Barhoum is going to perform at the Studio featuring her second Album Alcantara II, held at Dubai Opera. She is set to sing songs from popular operas, including La Boheme, Turandot and Carmen.

Jordanian Soprano Zeina Barhoum's first album Alcántara - Bridging Cultures Across The Mediterranean & Beyond was recently launched on iTunes & Anghami. The album contains 10 Arabic and international cover songs, including the classical Andalusian-Arabic song Lamma Bada, the Neapolitan song O Sole Mio and Sempre Libera from Verdi's La Traviata and more.

Zeina Barhoum is a classically trained Soprano and founder of The Alcántara music and art series. Zeina has performed at benefits countless times for the benefit of women, children, peace and prosperity. Among her many invitations to perform, Barhoum was invited to perform at Kensington Palace in celebration of Women achievers, and for bridging cultures through the Arab International Women's Forum.

Her album Alcántara refers to the Roman stone arch bridge built in Extremadura, Spain. The title of the song reflects Zeina's dedication to building strong connections of understanding and compassion through her music. Her second album, Alcántara II was recently recorded live and launched at a concert accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Lviv and Choir lead by Conductor Lorenzo Tazzieri. Zeina obtained a BSC in Visual Communication at the American University of Sharjah.

During 2017, Barhoum was awarded the Grand Prix at a ceremony held by the Embassy of Ukraine in Jordan. She had previously won the same award at the 2nd Taras Shevchenko International Singing Competition. In July 2017, Barhoum launched the Amman Opera Festival (AOF), the first opera festival in the Arab world. Currently, she is working on launching AOF's second edition featuring the opera La Bohème on September 4th and 6th, 2018 at the Roman Theatre in downtown Amman. The festival will be opened with a performance highlighting young local talent from the workshop help under the umbrella of the festival "An Eye on Music in Education" accompanied by the Sichuan Philharmonic. Partial proceeds will be allocated towards a scholarship fund and the benefit of underprivileged children in collaboration with Taawon for Youth and Save The Children Fund.

National Express Credit Cards are also a ticket selling point for AOF including Cozmo 7th circle.
