The Unique Dhow Shaped Structure

Opera Theatre Dubai

Lying across the well-known Dubai fountain and near the Dubai mall, this opera stands tall resembling a dhow. The traditional boats, ships, yachts and transporting vessels are synonymous to Dubai’s economy. The opera shaped like a ship is a tribute to Dubai’s history and represents the contemporary and age-old designs and culture. This structure took three years to be completed and made functional.

Made of glass and transparent sheets, the opera consists of approximately 2900 led lights and 21 dressing rooms. It is designed in a way that provides luxury experiences to visitors. The roof-top restaurants, cafes, bars, sky gardens and views of the Dubai fountain and the great Burj Khalifa from the terrace are incredible. The performance and rehearsal space are designed intricately, and the overhead reflectors, towers and acoustic shells enhance the audio-visual and light quality.
