Early bird tickets are now on sale!

CHICAGO, the longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history is making its way to Dubai in 2022. The musical has won six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy and is one musical you need to see.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long for All That Jazz as the musical is running at the start of the month from January 5 to 15. What a great way to start the new year!

If you want to see the performance, head to the Dubai Opera website to snap up your tickets as they are already on sale. Prices start from just Dhs295 per person.

So, what is CHICAGO all about?


The musical is set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s. It follows the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she decides to dupe the public, media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly. She does this by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.
