Dubai Opera 2

After the opening of the world's largest indoor theme park this morning, IMG Worlds of Adventure, the city is ready for the official opening of Dubai Opera.

Dubai has given us the world's tallest building (Burj Khalifa), largest mall (The Dubai Mall) and finest hotel (Burj Al Arab) and now it gives us this stunning performing arts destination. 

The inaugural of Dubai Opera ticks another achievement for the city and reminds us that nothing is impossible here.

Here's why you should be visiting Dubai Opera...

The wait was long, but when you step inside you’ll realise it was well worth it!

3. Its multi-purpose design venue is incredible

Architect Janus Rostock's design allows the venue to be transformed from a theatre into a concert hall and a flat floor mode (making it an ideal event setting).

You could have your dream wedding here!
