Dubai Opera, Dubai

Dubai Opera is a truly unique venue and the city’s first purpose built multi-format performing arts theatre situated in the heart of Downtown Dubai. Offering the ultimate flexibility of a proscenium arch theatre, an acoustic concert hall and a 2000m2 flat floor event space, the configuration will allow for approximately 2000 seats for a concert and up to 1000 for a gala dinner.

Outside of the main auditorium, the venue has a smaller performance space and rehearsal room and a stunning rooftop restaurant and sky garden with views of Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain.

With an iconic dhow shaped design rooted in Emirati heritage, Dubai Opera is the definitive destination for quality entertainment productions and performances. Dubai Opera's stage will host an incredible array of world-class talent. With opera, ballet and classical music concerts and productions at the core, Dubai Opera will also stage musical theatre, fashion shows, jazz, comedy, family shows and a full range of live entertainment.

  • Watched Edith Piaf. It really is spectacular... 5 star for the performers. Atmosphere was delightful ,people are from mix race. I love coming to the opera every time there is something nice to see.
  • The definitive destination for performing arts in Dubai, bringing arts and music to life like never before. Located at what’s billed as ‘the most prestigious square kilometre in the world’ in Downtown Dubai, Dubai Opera is the radiant centre of culture and arts in Dubai and the shining pearl of The Opera District. Dubai Opera passionately embraces its role as the creative heart of the city, producing and hosting the finest, most authentic, and engaging performing arts experiences from Dubai and the world.
  • One of my favorite places to go to in Dubai. My only complaint is a lack of affordable food and drink, and the venue has a lackluster variety of non alcoholic drinks. Other than this, the show I watched was fantastic, the employees are very polite and helpful. I did seem slightly underdressed, so make sure you wear your nicer clothes. The venue itself is extremely nice and fitting for what it is. Very clean of course, and not obnoxiously big. Their roast beef sandwich is one of the best I ever eaten.
  • Outstanding ! Went to see the Merry widow and it was totally worth it. Used the Entertainer to make it even more worth it. Décors were stunning! Even better - the dining options just behind the Opera are out of this world - honestly I didn't expect SO GOOD culinary experience.
  • Big hassle reaching and leaving from the venue which was very strange and unexpected for something smack in the middle of downtown Dubai. Google map pin sucks for someone visiting as it doesn't take you to the drop off point .. thankfully the opera house sends you parking and other Details when you book tickets ... opera house itself was beautiful .. enjoyed ourselves
