On a radiant Parisian day, Farrah El Dibany, the pioneering Egyptian mezzo-soprano and the first African singer to join the Paris Opera Academy, welcomes us into her luxurious suite, offering views of the Eiffel Tower’s magnificent silhouette. As sunlight filters in, casting dramatic shadows, El Dibany, adorned in vintage couture-inspired attire, becomes the embodiment of a classical aria, resplendent and timeless. 

Around her neck, wrists, and fingers shimmer pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels’ Le Grand Tour High Jewelry collection, a tribute to the historic charm of Europe's cultural centers. Each gemstone and design captures the lavishness and complexity akin to operatic sequences and the grandeur of a bygone European journey. El Dibany’s ambition has always been to bridge souls with her art, envisioning a renewed appreciation for opera. This pursuit of excellence aligns seamlessly with Van Cleef & Arpels’ storied tradition, positioning her as a living testament to the Maison’s dedication to fine craftsmanship.
