Jingle Bell Favourites are back for a third year from December 13 to 15…

Can’t bear to think about Christmas yet? Well, maybe this will get you in the festive spirit: Christmas concert Jingle Bell Favourites is coming back to Dubai Opera this December 13.

Yes, that might be almost five months away (it’s 159 days until Christmas, in case you were wondering), but that won’t stop us double checking we still know where our novelty antlers are.

Returning for a third year, Jingle Bell favourites will run from December 13 to 15, with a line-up of classic sing along carols and festive family favourites across morning, matinee and evening shows. Just don’t be surprised to be dancing in the aisles by the end of the show to hits such as Jingle Bell Rock, Frosty the Snowman, and Baby It’s Cold Outside.

Both The London Concert Orchestra Show Band and Capital Voices Choir will be jetting into the city to kickstart your Christmas countdown, performing a two-hour show of festive classics.

And celebrating the ever-growing talent of choral singing in the region, 48 Gems students will share the stage alongside the Capital Voices as the Gems Choir makes a special appearance on stage.

“Let the sleigh bells ring, it’s time to look forward to the most wonderful time of the year as the ever-popular and magical Jingle Bells Favourites returns, book early!” commented Jasper Hope, Dubai Opera’s CEO.
