Spectacular First Performance for Dubai Opera

The eyes of the world were on Dubai as Dubai Opera held its first performance. Offering a first glimpse at one of the most anticipated venues to open in the UAE’s history, a lucky few were able to witness a breathtaking performance by world-class tenor Plácido Domingo. With tickets for the first show at Dubai Opera selling out in just three hours when they went on sale earlier this year, guests were welcomed with canapés and beverages before taking their seats for the performance of a lifetime. Jasper Hope, Chief Executive of Dubai Opera said: “Tonight was a musical moment in history.  Dubai Opera looked stunningly beautiful tonight and those fortunate enough to be inside can confirm it sounded spectacular with a wonderful performance by the legendary Plácido Domingo.  We are very much looking forward to welcoming many more people to the venue over the next few days, weeks and months and firmly intend for Dubai Opera to make a major and lasting contribution for the future.”
