DUBAI : Opera House is on its way

Dubai is finally getting its own Center of Performing Arts โ€ฆ the Opera District.

New stylish cultural destination next to 828m tall Burj Khalifa is set to promote the arts, culture, and events.

At the heart of The Opera District is Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format venue for opera, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events, and seasonal programmes.

As per the latest info, Opera House is set to be open by end of 2016.

Once finished, the area will also include hotels, a retail plaza, waterfront promenades and recreational spaces situated around design studios, art galleries and other cultural venues intended to create a โ€œvibrant cultural sceneโ€.

The Building is styled on the classic wooden dhows that are synonymous with the Dubai Creek.

Enjoy the photos.

    • That’s exactly it. As Dubai positioning itself as a global tourist hub, it must have all sort of attractions to cater to wide variety of tastes. Once Abu Dhabi Museums are open it will all works well together ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you very much for your comment
