Remember the days when you’d have a good rave to club anthems spun out by top DJs?

Well if you feel like you’re a bit sophisticated for all that now but still harbour the joys of big-box, little-box then this could be for you.

Iconic Haçienda DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering will unite with a full symphony orchestra at Dubai Opera on Thursday November 22, for club classics with a classical twist.

The one-off performance will feature old-school house, club anthems and rave classics like you’ve never heard them before, thanks to the talents of full symphony orchestra, The Manchester Camerata, conducted by Tim Crooks.

The Haçienda nightclub was a renowned venue in Manchester, England, and both Graeme Park and Mike Pickering were the club’s original DJ partnership.

Now the duo offer an unforgettable show, taking smash-hits such as Pacific State, Voodoo Ray, Ride on Time and You’ve Got The Love and giving them a classical makeover whilst ensuring they retain all their epic character.

Jasper Hope, Chief Executive at Dubai Opera, commented: “For anyone who loves the incredible club anthems of the 1980s, this is going to be the party night of the year, as the music of two legendary Hacienda Club DJs combine with a full live symphony orchestra in the magical surroundings of Dubai Opera.”
