It’s largely regarded as one of the most popular musicals in the world, and this October The Phantom of the Opera is set to make its Dubai debut.

Taking to the stage at Dubai Opera in Autumn of 2019, the show will run from Wednesday October 16 until Wednesday October 30. Tickets will go on sale at 8am on Thursday January 31, will be priced from Dhs250.

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.
