Umm Kulthum hologram to perform at Dubai Opera

Umm Kulthum hologram to perform at Dubai Opera: Umm Kulthum is still holding concerts and in January of this year, the Egyptian singer starred in the Arab world’s first hologram concert at Tantora Festival in Saudi Arabia's Al Ula, according to The National. This week, she’s coming to Dubai on Thursday, 26 December and Friday, 27 December at their opera and will be backed by a live orchestra. The Umm Kulthum hologram was created from scratch when Egyptian actress Sabreen was enlisted to recreate her stage movements which were then digitally rendered by technicials from the Arab World, China, and the US. Sabreen had previously starred as Umm Kulthum in the popular 1999 Ramadan television ­series named after the legendary singer.
