The opera singer and actor DAVID SERERO will perform at the Award Ceremony to celebrate the Lifetime Achievement of Mr ANDRE AZOULAY, iconic figure of Morocco and the Counsellor of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, in New York on Thursday March 30th 2017.
“Mr Azoulay always has been a strong inspiration for every Moroccan and in particular every Moroccan Jews. Mr Azoulay makes me proud every day of my Moroccan heritage. He is the symbol of co-existence and to bring people together. To sing for him, in New York, for this well deserved Award, given by the American Sephardi Federation, one of the most prestigious organization in the world, is a tremendous honor for me.” said opera star and actor David Serero.
Mr Serero was born and raised in Paris with a Moroccan heritage given by his father, born in Fez. David Serero is a successful opera singer, actor and producer who lives in New York. However, he has never broken from his Sephardic and Moroccan origins. Last season, he accomplished a Sephardic triple threat! He starred as Nabucco (who was Sephardi in a way…), Shylock (Merchant of Venice), which he adapted in a Sephardi style and Othello’s title role (adapted in a Jewish Moroccan style). Those two Shakespeare productions were a World Première. Serero managed to add the Darbuka instrument along with Shakespeare’s text, surrounded by Jewish Arabic Moroccan classic songs and even rearranging the opera version, Verdi’s Otello, with a Moroccan orchestration.
