RIYADH: More than 10 million people flocked to Riyadh Season, which is going to end with a bang at the King Fahd Stadium on Thursday, according to event organizers.
The CEO of General Entertainment Authority, Faisal Bafarat, told the media on Tuesday that the season had achieved impressive results and numbers, including revenues and visitor numbers from inside and outside the Kingdom.
Anghela Alo, who is creative director of Riyadh Season, said: “The great numbers and successes achieved deserve to have a conclusion worthy of it, so the show ‘Leila Land of Imagination’ will be the perfect conclusion to the season. We are happy that the partners in the season are with us in this ceremony, in addition to the visitors of Riyadh Season.”
Marco Balich, from Balich Worldwide Shows, said: “We firmly believe that if we integrate global experiences with national talents, we will be able to create unique offers that will leave unforgettable memories and a legacy. This is a great time for the Saudis, and we had the privilege of being here on a joint journey toward Vision 2030.”
Noura Al-Abeed, who plays Leila in the show, was also at the press conference. The show follows her as she embarks on a journey toward the future. Alo said: “Leila is a symbol of the new Saudi generations who live a changing reality. The future is around the corner. All she needs to know about herself is to unleash her imagination.”
The show has 488 performers, 293 crew members and two horses. Spectators can also expect fireworks, an inflatable fortress, dancing and hundreds of original costumes.
Music and video clips were also produced for the show. The stadium has a 67,000-seat capacity. Tickets can be bought from the website RiyadhSeason.com and start from SR25 ($6.70).
