Tickets to Dubai Opera inauguration with Placido Domingo sold out

An ambitious project developed for years to host a variety of performances and events, the Dubai Opera will open to the world in just a few days. Tickets to the inauguration on 31st August are already sold out, and attenders are anxious to see the act that will start off the many amazing performances the theatre will host, a show-stopping performance from one of the world’s greatest singers, Placido Domingo.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum had announced the plans to build in March 2012, and expected it to open in 2016. The promise has been kept. Since the works to build this amazing theatre began four years ago, the Dubai Opera has finally taken the form of a 2,000 seat, multi-format, performing arts centre that architects envisioned.

Located within the Opera District in Downtown Dubai, the theatre was developed by Emar Properties and looks to welcome all kinds of presentations including theatre, opera, ballet, concerts, conferences and exhibitions. Dubai Opera was designed to resemble a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel, in which the bow of the structure houses the opera's main stage, orchestra and seating, while the elongated hull comprises waiting areas, taxi drop-off areas, and parking.

Grammy-winning Puerto Rican soprano Ana Maria Martinez and the orchestra of Teatro Lirico “Giuseppe Verdi”, Trieste, conducted by Maestro Eugene Kohn, will accompany the main star of the show, Placido Domingo. Described in the international press as “the King of Opera”, “a true renaissance man in music” and “the greatest operatic artist of modern times”, the Spanish tenor will have the honour of initiating the many awe-inspiring performances that will take place in this magnificent theatre.

Placido Domingo has been at home on the world’s stages for over half a century. Over 4,000 singing and conducting engagements to date have taken him across the globe, from leading opera houses to historic concerts celebrating some of the greatest international events. He has recorded over a hundred complete operas and is well known for his versatility, regularly performing in Italian, French, German, Spanish, English and Russian. Although primarily a lirico-spinto tenor for most of his career, he quickly moved into more dramatic roles, becoming the most acclaimed Otello of his generation.

After his amazing performance in Dubai Opera, the artist, who has inspired generations and received acclamation worldwide, will be performing at the Royal Opera House of Muscat, in Oman. Tickets to this event are also sold out, even though the show is not for another five months, on 11th January, 2017.
