The Phantom of the Opera is coming to Dubai Opera


The world’s most popular musical will head to Dubai in Autumn 2019…

It’s largely regarded as one of the most popular musicals in the world, and it’s just been announced that The Phantom of the Opera is set to make its Dubai debut next year.

Taking to the stage at Dubai Opera in Autumn of 2019, the show will run for a number of yet to be announced dates. Tickets will go on sale after Christmas, but you can register for tickets from tomorrow (Thursday December 13) on the Dubai Opera website.

The show, created by Andrew Lloyd Webber, will come to Dubai straight from London, and Dubai Opera will be the only location to host the iconic show in the GCC.

“We’re enormously proud to be able to announce this,” commented Dubai Opera CEO Jasper Hope at the announcement.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.
