Celebration on Monday will be centred around a spectacular theatrical production titled Legacy of Our Ancestors
The official 48th National Day celebrations - to be held on Monday under the patronage of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE - will take place at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The organising committee confirmed that the preparations for the celebration have been completed and will be centred around a spectacular theatrical production titled Legacy of Our Ancestors.
According to state news agency WAM, the show will be staged on a scale not previously seen in the UAE with more than 5,000 experts from 70 countries coming together to shape the production.
The show will take the audience on a vivid journey of the UAE’s heritage through a series of stories that highlight values of courage, determination, generosity, and tolerance, which have been long embedded in the UAE’s national and social fabric and have been passed down through generations.
WAM said the epic scale of the production has been brought to life by the efforts of many dedicated individuals coming from diverse backgrounds and cultures, a reflection of co-existence and tolerance which are key components of the UAE’s social inclusion, with more than 200 nationalities living in harmony.
This year’s celebration will welcome 20,000 attendees, both citizens and residents, it added.
