Desperate to see the film before it’s released? You’ll want to get a ticket to this…

The long-awaited Elton John biopic, Rocketman is set to be released this June, but if you want to see it first, you’ll want to get yourself to Dubai Opera.

For their first ever red carpet movie premiere, Dubai Opera will be offering VIP ticket holders the chance to see Paramount Pictures’ Rocketman on Tuesday June 11, two days earlier than its scheduled release across the UAE.

Tickets start from Dhs95, and for that, guests will get to experience the red-carpet glamour, a live orchestra performance and of course, the first screening of the new film.

The film focuses on Elton John’s breakout into the music industry, seeing him go from unknown Reginald Dwight to the international superstar he’s known as today, famous for songs like Tiny Dancer, Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart and of course Rocket Man. Elton is played by Taron Egerton, and will see him perform all of Elton’s iconic hits through the decades.

“I am so pleased to announce our first ever red-carpet film event is the GCC premiere of Rocketman, an epic musical about a truly extraordinary artist,” said Jasper Hope of Dubai Opera.

Rocketman will then hit cinemas across Dubai on Thursday June 13.

Rocketman at Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai, Dubai, 8pm onwards, Tuesday June 11, from Dhs95. Tel:(04) 4408888.
