Iconic Dubai Opera House!
The Dubai Opera will be as iconic in appearance as the world-famous Sydney Opera House which will be the centerpiece of the Opera District in Downtown Dubai area, which is set for completion in March 2016.
As for Dubai Opera, the Arabian dhow has been the inspiration behind its architecture. The 2,000-seat, multi-format performing arts venue in the emirate will have the ability to transform into three modes; from a theatre to a concert hall and into a “flat floor” form, becoming a banquet of event hall.
The opera is expected to attract several tourists from the GCC and neighboring countries, which is expected to boost the hotel occupancy in surrounding Downtown hotels.
It is designed to resemble a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel, in which the 'bow' of the structure will house the opera's mainstage, orchestra and seating, while the elongated 'hull' will have waiting areas, taxi drop-off areas, and parking.
Get ready for The Opera District, coming to Downtown Dubai next year.
