A new beginning: Expo 2020


Tomorrow the famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will take part in the opening ceremony of Expo 2020 Dubai. Not only will Bocelli join other top international musicians such as British pop star Ellie Goulding, Chinese pianist Lang Lang, and four-time Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, but he will also symbolically hand over the World Expo’s baton to the UAE.

In an interview he declared to Khaleej Times that for him it is an honor to participate in such an event and he is happy to celebrate the culture of beauty and progress in a city that he frequented for many years. The tenor, who had also participated in the opening ceremony of Expo 2015 in Milan, declared that this event feels like a new beginning.

He also believes that music is the perfect metaphor for the Expo 2020 theme “Connecting Minds, Creating The Future”.
