Phantom of the Opera dates for Dubai announced

Worldwide hit musical Phantom of the Opera is coming to the city this year, and tickets are on sale to the public on Thursday January 31.

Dubai Opera has confirmed that the show will run from Wednesday October 16 until Wednesday October 30, with performances every night at 8pm except Sundays.

There will also be 2pm matinees each week on Friday and Saturday, giving fans an extra chance to catch the second-longest running West End musical of all time.

Tickets start from Dhs250 and go right up to Dhs850 for VIP seats at the very front of the auditorium.

The show duration is estimated to be approximately 3 hours including a 20-minute interval.

Based on the novel by Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera captured the attention of theatre and musical fans worldwide.

Many actors have taken on the role, which was launched in the West End by Some Mothers Do ’Av ’Em star Michael Crawford. Lloyd Webber’s wife Sarah Brightman took the role of Christine.

The pair reprised their roles in the original Broadway cast. At the Royal Albert Hall 25th Anniversary show, Ramin Karimloo played the part of the Phantom.

The Opera also recently announced three brand-new acts coming in 2019, including top name Jake Bugg.

The British musician will be making his way to Dubai along with South African rocker Ard Matthews and rock band Watershed, and London’s West End tribute to George Michael, Fastlove.

We can't wait to take our seats.

Tickets on sale Thu Jan 31. From Dhs250. 8pm, Wed Oct 16-Wed Oct 30. 2pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai, www.dubaiopera.com.
