Dubai Opera House…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.
Devinda Kariyawasam, Senior Project Manager of Pacific World UAE, reveals details of this brand-new venue that will open doors next August 31st.
Q: Why this Opera House is so special?
A: This is a multi-functional venue, a sttate-of-the-art performing arts centre that using hydraulic technology can be easily converted into a traditional theatre, concert hall, banquet hall or exhibition space, to relocate 900 of the 2,000 seats. It’s a stunning building that match with Dubai’s skyline. It as designed by one of the most famous architects of Middle East: Janus Rostock of Atkins. The venue resemble a dhow (a traditional sailing vessel).
Q :What spaces will be available at Dubai Opera for private events?
A: The venue offer plenty of options to celebrate cocktails, dinners but also conferences. The Main theatre can hosts meetings of up to 1.900 persons (theatre mode) or banquets of 1.400 guests. There is also a Rehearsal Room (capacity: 300 persons seated), a Rooftop Bar and restaurant and two wonderful terraces overlooking Dubai dancing fountains which will eventually have more food and beverage outlets/space.
Q: Any experience you are planning to suggest to guests interested in the Opera for their events?
A: A private concert followed by a cocktail in one of the terraces seems will be a good option. We are also exploring the option of combining back-stage, meeting with a play actors folowed by the show, ending with a fancy dinner. We are looking forward to the opening to start working on new products and ideas to amaze guests in this new stunning space.
