    Description: Orphalese concert

    Orphalese, a concert of exhilarating classical music by the Andalus Arabic Choir and soprano Ghada Daher-Elmowy takes you on a magical journey from the Middle-East to Andalusia. It is where vocals and music create counterpoints to indulge you in Tarab, a euphoric state of enjoyment.

    Orphalese vivifies Sydney’s nightlife with captivating rhythms, nostalgic melodies and exotic airs to transport you to a dream of an oriental midsummer night.

    The concert duration is 120 min, two sets and an interval. Set one is a tribute to Kahlil Gibran’s centenary the “Prophet”. It includes songs from his publications and short poetry readings in Arabic and English. Set two reverts to a broad repertoire in various Arabic dialects.
