Alex appeared in the Royal Opera House production of "Beloved Friend" by Ronald Harwood in Abu Dhabi. The production was part of the Abu Dhabi Classics festival.

Tchaikovsky's music was performed by a Royal Opera House quintet, including a Swan Lake pas de deux, gracefully danced by Royal Ballet duo Roberta Marquez and Valeri Hristov. Baritone Vasily Ladyuk and soprano Hibla Gerzmava performed some of Tchaikovsky’s songs from Six Romances and Eugene Onegin.
