Appearing everywhere from high class hotels to Hollywood hits, Nellie Petrova has finally found a more permanent performance platform in the form of Abu Dhabi's Ritz-Carlton. There, the illustrious Ms. Petrova will greet guests with her alluring voice and charming features four nights a week.

Designer luggage and fussing bellhops were rarely part of the backdrop for the soprano Nellie Petrova.

Then the Bulgarian-born opera singer landed the unusual mission of helping a new UAE five-star hotel go the extra octave to give guests a sophisticated experience.

Now, four nights a week, Petrova’s voice greets guests at the spectacular lobby of the Venetian-inspired Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, as sunset illuminates the neighbouring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Although it’s a contrast to the concert halls she is used to, Petrova is bewitched by the setting.
