Watch: Amazing time-lapse video of the new Dubai Opera
And it looks set to open in a matter of months with shows already booked!
It's been two years in the making but Dubai Opera is finally taking shape, and if rumours are to be believed, we could be sat inside the magnificent concert hall by the end of the summer! Yes, that's right. Our sources tell us that shows are booked already...so when it comes to getting the final touches done, well, the show must go on.
This time-lapse video shows how far the construction has come...
The concert hall next to Burj Park, overlooking the Dubai Fountains, will serve up more than just Opera. It'll be a venue that will showcase musicals, theatre, comedy and ballet, as well as rock and pop gigs.
Here's some pictures of the venue and first look at the promo video...to get you even more excited!
