Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, enjoyed a theatre production that took one of his own books from the page to the stage in the dazzling setting of Al Wasl Plaza.

Al-Adiyat The Boy and the Horse was inspired by his 2019 book My Story.

It tells the tale of a young boy with a wise vision, who grows up to become a leader and a horse that rediscovers her passion for life.

The show, which runs at Expo 2020 Dubai until November 18, has a rich poetic narrative, celebrating humans’ ability to harness their hidden capabilities.

Directed by Amna Belhoul, executive creative director for entertainment and events at Expo 2020 Dubai, the 20-minute production was adapted from three stories included in My Story – Latifa, First Horse and the First Race.
