TUNIS, The Music and Opera Pole of the City of Culture presented on Saturday February 02. 2019, the musical concert " Parfum de Jasmin" by Fadi Ben Othman with the participation of the Orchestra and Choir of the Opera of Tunis at the Theater of Regions of the City.

In presence of a large audience, Fadi Ben Othman took us in a magical journey from Paris and Damascus to Tunis. The show was full of romantic vibes recalling the symbols that evokes the flower of Jasmine from which was inspired Fadi Ben Othman in his show “Parfum de Jasmin".

44 young musicians of the Orchestra and Choir of the Opera of Tunis performed a selection of musical melodies composed by Fadi Ben Othmen and sung by Haythem Hadhiri (Barytone) and Henda Ben Chaabene (Soprano).

The beginning was with a song composed by Fadi Ben Othman on a poem written also by him and Hala Channoufi, then a the Orchestra played a selection of five songs that was marvelously sung by Haythem Hadhiri and Henda Ben Chaabene including: Mon coeur s’ouvre à toi, Dis moi que tu m’aimes, La Valse d’autrefois, L’arc en Ciel et la mer …

The second part of the show took the audience to Damascus when the two stars of the evening performed a selection of songs written by late Nizar Kabbeni, namely “Irdhab”, “Damas”, “Ila Rajoulin”.

And as a surprise for the great audience present at the Theater of Regions on the occasion, Haythem Hadhiri and Henda Ben Chaabene performed the song “Rihet El Bled” with the Tunisian dialect which Fadi Ben Othmen managed and turned into an opera song.

The show was ended by a song written by the Tunisian poet Ayman Hassan, inspired from a work of Abulkacem Chebbi performed with the choir of the Orchestra of the Opera of Tunis.

“Parfum de Jasmin” was a real delight that the audience of the City saluted with long ovations.
