Six epic shows coming to Dubai Opera this winter

Whether you’re after some cultural ballet or a head-banging night of rock music, Dubai Opera has a treat in store for you this winter.

If you’re into nineties and noughties rock, you’re in luck as Feeder will be taking to the stage for one night only on Thursday November 27.

Fans can expect all the Welsh-Japanese band’s classic hits such as Buck Rogers, Feeling a Moment and Just the Way I’m Feeling.

Since 1994, when the band first formed, Feeder has racked up ten studio albums, 40 singles, multiple arena tours and a host of festival headlines. Clearly, they know how to put on a show, and you don’t want to miss it.

Tickets are now on sale starting from Dhs150, but you can get 20 percent off on the top three seat categories if you book yourself a spot before Thursday September 13.

The deal doesn’t stop there. Dubai Opera has also announced five other new shows taking place over the next few months to celebrate its second anniversary, and the Early Bird offer applies to them, too.

First up, on Saturday November 1, will see the return of Comedy Night, in association with Arts Canteen’s “Arabs Are Not Funny”. The comical night will feature Welsh-Egyptian comic Omar Hamdi, along with Fatiha El Ghorri, Nabil Abdulrashid and Maria Shehata to leave you in stitches.

On Wednesday December 12, Pianist Alexandra Dariescu’s The Nutcracker and I will set you in the mood for a season of festivities, with ballerina performances and whimsical songs such as Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

As for next year, from March 19 to March 22, 2019, lovers of orchestra are in for a treat, as the BBC Proms will be making its way to Dubai Opera once again, following the success of its performance in 2017. With five concerts all leading up to a spectacular Last Night of the Proms, this four-day music festival is a must.

Found something that suits your fancy? Tickets to all performances are now available at, and you can find out what else is showing while you're there. Nab yourself a seat, pronto.

"In short, the second year of Dubai Opera’s life has been about building on the excitement and success of the first year and looking for further opportunities to showcase the best and most diverse talent from the region and the world,” said , Chief Executive of Dubai Opera Jasper Hope.

“Our ambition is to be the defining destination for quality live performances in the region and to represent as diverse a programme as possible on our stages to appeal to the extraordinarily cosmopolitan audiences here.”

As for now, fans of strong prima donnas can look forward to Carmen, one of the world’s most famous operas, which is set to run from Thursday September 6 until Saturday September 8.

That’s your opera fix sorted.
