Sing along to Jingle Bell Favourites at Dubai Opera

Christmas tunes are blasting from speakers across Dubai, but if you really want to get singing, booking is now open for one of the biggest festive music events.

The GEMS Education Choir, made up of an ever-growing talent selection of 48 students, will be performing Jingle Bell Favourites live at the Dubai Opera from Thursday December 13 to Saturday December 15.

The line-up will include sing-a-long tunes such as Jingle Bell Rock, Baby It’s Cold Outside, Silent Night, Santa Claus is Coming To Town, Let It Snow and Winter Wonderland to name a few.

Students will be singing alongside the London Concert Orchestra Show Band and Capital Singers, under the direction of renowned London conductor Freddie Tapner.

Jingle Bell Favourites will feature concert carols from a host of regional industry legends and West End star soloists Alison Jiear and Matt Little.

The GEMS Choir, under the direction of GEMS’ Heady of Music Paul Kemp, will be on for a choice of morning, matinee and evening performances.

Craving gingerbread cookies? Opera Café will be serving festive treats during the show too.

Phew, at least now we have an excuse to bust out into a remix of Frosty the Snowman during office hours.
From Dhs175. Dec 13-15, Thu 8pm; Fri 11am, 3pm, 8pm; Sat 2pm, 7pm. Dubai Opera, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, dubaiopera.com.
