The multi-purpose site Dubai Opera is set for completion in March 2016 according to its developer.
A part of The Opera District development in Downtown Dubai, the Opera will have 2,000 seats. The finalization of the steel structure, concrete, electromechanical works are still underway.
The design of Dubai Opera is compared to a dhow, a traditional seafaring craft, where the opera’s center stage, seats and orchestra are located at ‘bow’ of the construction, while the elongated part of the establishments will serve as waiting, drop-off, and parking areas.
The developer aims to make the Dubai Opera prominent for its design like the Opera House found in Sydney, Australia. It will be the venue for opera, orchestra, theatre, performances, art exhibitions, film showings, sports events and seasonal programs.
