Egyptian maestro, singer, composer, and bassoonist Nader Abbasi is taking his musical prowess to New York’s Glimmerglass Festival, an internationally acclaimed annual opera and musical theatre festival. Abbasi will be leading 13 opera performances, from July 7th 2023 until August 19th 2023, serenading audiences with Italian composer Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohéme, one of the most popular operas of all time.

Ever since he mastered the bassoon - one of the hardest instruments to play - at the Conservatoire of The Higher Institute for Music, Abbasi has gone on to complete his studies at the Conservatoire of Geneva, and the International Academy of Musical Expression of the Symphony Orchestra in Paris.

Abbasi also stunned audiences last year with his performance during the Pharaohs’ Golden Parade, which celebrated the transfer of 22 ancient Egyptian royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat.
