French-Irish baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer is bringing opera to Dubai in a recital at the One & Only Mirage Resort. The May 29th show is entitled “It’s All About Love” and will feature famous love songs in German, Russian, French and English.
The show will take the audience to Berlin, Moscow, Paris and New York by featuring pop classics from ’40s, songs by Franz Schubert and the 19th century song repertory.  Crossley-Mercer is also quite familiar with Berlin, having studied at the Hanns Eisler Hochschule fur Musik.
Tickets for the show are available online.
The singer’s next performance also takes him to the Arabian Peninsula, but only musically. He will perform Schumann’s Paradise and the Peri at the Festival de Saint Denis, which was inspired by one of the tales of the Arabian Nights. The text mixes enchantments with elements from the Bible, the Koran and mythology.
On March 4, 2016, he makes his US stage debut as Lescaut in Massenet’s Manon at the Dallas Opera.
