Madinat Theatre

Having played host to a huge variety of national and international performers, the Madinat Theatre is one of the best known and most respected theatres in Dubai. Catering to holidaymakers as well as residents of the city, the theatre's programme is so varied there's guaranteed to be something for everyone.

Located in the heart of the Souq Madinat, in the centre of vibrant Dubai, the Madinat Theatre was the first to be built in the city, opening its doors to eager crowds back in 2004.

Able to seat 442 people, the theatre has been designed to resemble an ancient Arabian citadel. The interior of the theatre is decorated with intricate carvings, sumptuous fabrics and warm, rich colours, giving it a real sense of occasion and grandeur.

The programme of performances at the Madinat Theatre is incredibly eclectic and visitors can expect to see anything, including Shakespeare plays, pantomimes, Broadway musicals, classical operas, musical tribute acts and even performances by international recognised comedians and performers.

This makes the theatre the perfect destination for families, couples and groups staying in Dubai, as well as residents of the city, and means that no matter how often you return to the venue, you’re almost guaranteed to see a completely different show every time.

A popular venue with international expats looking for a few home comforts, as well as local residents looking to experience a bit of international culture, the Madinat Theatre is an important part of Dubai’s entertainment scene.

Within easy reach of many of the city’s hotels, resorts and holiday apartments, as well as its shopping malls, offices and attractions, a trip to this iconic theatre is easy to fit into a busy day of exploring in Dubai.

As the Madinat Theatre is so close to the centre of Dubai, it’s easy for theatregoers to find an outstanding restaurant for a pre-performance meal or a stylish bar for a post-theatre drink.

If you’re planning a family trip to Dubai, a romantic escape to the Middle East or a group holiday to the UAE, squeezing in an evening at the Madinat Theatre will help to make your trip unforgettable. Why not book a ticket now and see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
