Dubai Opera: Where the Stage is always set.

Dubai Opera is the city’s first purpose-built multi-format performing arts theatre, situated in the heart of Downtown Dubai.

With an iconic dhow-shaped design rooted in Emirati heritage, the venue attracts a rich mix of homegrown and visiting entertainment from around the world.

The building’s exquisite design gives it the exceptional ability to transform from a traditional theatre into a concert hall, and even to a flat floor.

This seamless flexibility enables Dubai Opera to host a wide variety of performances and events including ballet, opera, theatre, orchestras, concerts, fashion shows, live entertainment, conferences, galleries and art exhibitions.

In theatre mode, it can accommodate up to 2,000 people, and when changing into a concert hall, a series of towers and reflectors on stage and overhead create an immersive sound experience.

From hosting traditional operas and musicals to all-standing concerts and squash tournaments, Dubai Opera has fast become one of the UAE’s most versatile venues.
