More than 80 musicians, including members of London's iconic Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, have collaborated to compose an original score for Legacy of Our Ancestors - the official 48th UAE National Day celebration - on December 2 at Zayed Sports City Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Created by eight international composers, the original Legacy of Our Ancestors score will add a "dramatic dimension to an epic theatrical show unfolding on one of the largest and most complex stage sets ever built for a UAE National Day celebration", organisers have said.
 
Drawing inspiration from distinct Emirati elements and featuring musical instruments unique to the UAE, the score will merge traditional Emirati music with contributions from leading international musicians from across the globe.
 
"Music is a key component of any theatrical production and the original score for 'Legacy of Our Ancestors' will elevate the overall impact and beauty of the production," said Saeed Al Suwaidi, representative of the Organising Committee of the Official 48th UAE National Day Celebration. "The UAE is a harmonious and tolerant home to hundreds of nationalities and cultures, which has influenced the composition of the original score.
 
All you need to know:
* The auditory experience will be delivered by more than 250 high-quality speakers connected by over 12km of cables
* It will take place on a gigantic 10,000sqm parametric stage and set created by expert craftsmen in nine global cities
* The show will be enhanced by more than 2,500 hidden LED lights
* 22 huge visual screens climbing 12 metres will display hand-drawn animations and cinematic sequences throughout the production.
