Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club presents "Giants of Jazz"
Ready for a night of Jazz… by giants? Well not actual giants, but certainly in the jazz world. Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club has been hosting ground-breaking concerts since its creation in 1959 by late saxophonist Ronnie Scott and Pete King, who were inspired by the vibrant post-war jazz venues in New York. Now, it’s making its way to Dubai Opera, taking audiences on a musical journey through the last 100 years of jazz. It starts with Louis Armstrong and ends with the golden age of swing with Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington.

Flamenco Passion De Lucía a Camarón
Flamenco Passion is an acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble, and it’s set to dazzle audiences at Dubai Opera on Wednesday November 11. Their show ‘De Lucía a Camarón’ is a nod to legendary guitarist Paco de Lucía and vocalist Camarón de la Isla, who turned flamenco on its head when they joined forces in the late ‘60s and started the ‘Nuevo Flamenco’ wave. Expect a unique mix of piano, violin, flute and electric bass, all with a troupe of professional flamenco dancers.
