The Dubai Opera District
As the orchestra of world class musicians begin to play concert-goers will be delighted with what is already being described as an outstanding acoustic in the auditorium. The design of the theater means that all seats offer uninterrupted views of the stage and give an incredible sense of intimacy throughout. Dubai is set to make a lasting contribution to the performing arts and events’ sector with Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format venue for opera, theater, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events and seasonal programmes, within The Opera District.
The opportunity for visitors to the Opera to experience the power of live music in such an incredible venue is not an occasion to be underestimated. The connection between the exposure to music and the improvement on people’s happiness, health and wellbeing is well-documented. Dubai is the first city in the world to measure the happiness of its residents and visitors in an interactive way and so a visit to Dubai Opera will be a great option for meaningful leisure time.
