Part of the larger Opera District, the location will also offer an amphitheatre and a public plaza.

Highly anticipated Dubai Opera opens soon

The new Downtown Dubai Opera District is beginning to take form with the soon to be opened centre of the development, Dubai Opera. As detailed in a recently published article on Travel Daily by author Gemma Greenwood, the scenic destination is slated for an August opening, complete with an acoustic concert hall, a proscenium arch theatre and an oversized event space.

Capable of seating up to 1,000 for a gala dinner and up to twice that many for theatrical productions, Dubai Opera’s inaugural season includes dozens of performances including the ballet, opera, family entertainment and classical music. Spaniard Placido Domingo, often described as the “king of opera”, will perform the first concert at the venue. Other famed artists that will soon take the stage include sitar player Anouskha Shankar, Flamenco artist Sara Barras, singer Hussain Al Jassmi of the Emirates and tenor Jose Carreras of Catalonia, one of the famous “Three Tenors”.

The article also explains that some of the globe’s best illusionists will perform in live shows of “Impossible” while additionally the site will host “Slava’s Snowshow” and “The Nutcracker on Ice”. The global touring Bejart Ballet Lausanne is slated to perform “Piaf and Bolero”, “Seven Greek Dances” and “Ballet for Life”.

As of now Greenwood writes that Dubai Opera is progressing, with the steel structure and concrete up, while work continues on the metalwork, roofing, façade and other necessary additions such as the venue’s seating and water features.

With views of Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera is set amidst the larger Opera District. Connected via bridges to the Dubai Mall, the area will offer an amphitheatre and public plaza, museums, cultural venues and art galleries. In addition, the area is joined by hotels and the Opera Grand Tower residential building, under construction by a Greek company and set to include views of Dubai Opera.

Forte, another dual-tower apartment building and the luxurious Address Residences, with unmatched views of Burj Lake, Burk Park and Burj Khalifa, join the area. Dubai Opera is being constructed to match Dubai’s cultural heritage, inspired by the design of notorious vintage dhows in the UAE.

A holiday to Dubai is rich with the enjoyment of cultural attractions for holidaymakers, soon to be enhanced and enlarged by the aesthetic beauty and traditional appeal of the design and offerings of the newly constructed Dubai Opera.
