Farrah El-Dibany Sings French National Anthem for Macron's Re-Election
El-Dibany carried out the honour of performing 'La Marseillaise' in front of a massive crowd at the Champ de Mars to celebrate French President Macron's re-election.
To celebrate Emmanuel Macron's victory during the French presidential election, Egyptian mezzo-soprano Farrah El-Dibany was invited to sing the French national anthem in Paris. Dressed in a gorgeous red gown by Lebanese designer Gemy Maalouf, El-Dibany carried out the honour of performing 'La Marseillaise' in front of a massive crowd at the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower.
Earlier this month, El-Dibany received the Order of Arts and Letters at the French embassy in Cairo. She was the first Arab and Egyptian to join the Academy of the National Opera in Paris, and the first Arab to receive the Prix Lyrique de l'AROP, the Paris Opera’s most prestigious award. In November 2021, El-Dibany graced the stage at UNESCO's 75th anniversary celebrations in Paris, appearing in front of an audience of world leaders and dignitaries.
