Dubai's first purpose-built multi-format performing arts theatre, Dubai Opera in Downtown, overlooks the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain.
Set to open on 31 August, Dubai Opera will offer an acoustic concert hall and a 2,000m2 flat floor event space.
The venue will welcome a varied programme of cultural and lifestyle events including operas, ballet, classical performances, musicals, Arab and World Music, comedy, film, family entertainment, and rock, pop and jazz concerts.
It will seat up to 2,000 people for a theatrical production, and up to 1,000 for a gala dinner.
Emaar's Dubai Opera’s transparent all-glass foyer opens onto the waterfront of Burj Lake, and serves as a transition between a plaza and theatre.
