Set to become one of the most significant, vibrant and successful performing arts and entertainment centres in the Middle East, Dubai Opera is a 2,000-seat (approximate), multi-format theatre which will captivate visitors.
Dubai Opera will be unique for a venue of its size, in that it will have the ability to convert into three modes; from a theatre into a concert hall and into a ‘flat floor’ form, offering 2000 m² of space for events such as exhibitions and gala events.
What makes Dubai Opera so important is the new offering it will bring to residents and visitors of the city. It will become a hub for cultural activity, entertainment and artistic expression, while playing its part in creating a vibrant local community.
Dubai Opera aims to transform the emirate’s cultural footprint and establish the city as a part of the elite global theatre circuit – providing a vital new draw for the tourist industry – a cornerstone of Dubai’s economy.
Dubai Opera opened on 31st of August 2016 with a sold out performance by Placido Domingo.
