Yesterday, I’ve visited the construction site of the Dubai Opera House and to be honest… I was a bit surprised…instead of finishing touches, heavy construction is taking place on all levels.
In 27 days, the stage has to be set for Placido Domingo’s inaugural performance but to me, it looks far from finishing.
I am sure, the Opera teams are working around the clock to meet the deadline and hopefully all will be ready for the flashy opening night on the 31st Aug 2016. Fingers crossed!
The centre of performing arts, 2000 seat Dubai Opera will be multi-purpose venue with state-of-the art equipment. Its shape, designed by Danish architect Janus Rostock is based on the traditional Arabic fishing vessel, the Dhow.
The Opera’s program for rest of the year is looking very eventful and you can czech the show line-up on http://www.dubaiopera.com
