It will welcome a line-up of world-class performances including the renowned tenor, as well as The Barber of Seville by Rossini, The Pearl Fishers by Bizet, and the Giselle and Coppelia productions of The Russian State Ballet.
The Dubai Opera includes a proscenium arch theatre, an acoustic concert hall, and a 2,000 square metre flat floor event space.
Domingo has been at home on the world’s stages for over half a century. More than 4,000 singing and conducting engagements to date have taken him across the globe, from leading opera houses to historic concerts celebrating some of the greatest international events.
Jasper Hope, chief executive at Dubai Opera said: “The truth is, this is the first venue of its kind and when we put together the inaugural season we didn’t know exactly how popular it would be across the GCC.
"The response on day one of tickets sales has been absolutely overwhelming with bookings being taken from more than 20 countries, from Saudi Arabia to the UK, from Germany to Japan. It is no surprise to me that the opening performance of Dubai Opera with the 'King of Opera' has sold out, with many other shows following closely in his footsteps.
"Sales for the ballet and the opera have exceeded our expectations and with many shows only on stage for one night only, I would urge anyone who wants to come and experience a performance in Dubai Opera to book in advance to avoid any disappointment.”
