With its strategic location in Downtown Dubai and designed to be Dubai’s cultural hub, The Opera District will be the perfect place for promoting arts, culture and events.

The new development will have a modern art museum, galleries, design studios and the country’s first opera house.

Comparable to the world-famous Sydney Opera House in Australia, the Dubai Opera will be the district’s main attraction. Shaped like a dhow, the multi-purpose 2,000-seater entertainment destination can be transformed into three different modes: concert hall, theatre, and flat floor or banquet hall. These modes can host varied concerts, theatre productions, film showings, sports events and art exhibitions. Expected to be completed in the first half of 2016, the Dubai Opera is all set to become a major tourist destination.

The area will not only be characterised by recreational qualities, but also commercial aspects. With room for numerous events, The Opera District is expected to be a money spinner in the years to come. It will be adorned with parks, waterfront promenades and retail outlets, making it an ideal place for tourists as well as residents. Besides, the district will have luxury hotels catering to the global influx of tourists.

Big brands in malls and plush shops, the possibility of enjoying luxurious hospitality in the neighbourhood hotels and the lure of a great night life will surely be some of the perks associated with The Opera District. With stunning views of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Fountain and the downtown skyline, the district will be the address for a happening lifestyle. Easy access to numerous restaurants, cafés, health clubs, retail areas, The Dubai Mall and the city’s business district makes it an equally attractive place to live and visit.

Business opportunities will also arise and the buzzing The Opera District is prepared to attract travellers from around the globe.
