Throwing open its virtual doors to audiences around the world, the iconic performing arts centre is providing some much-needed culture and entertainment while music fans await the return of concert season from their homes.

 

These free experiences transform the pearl of Dubai’s Opera District into the ultimate digital destination for music lovers. Gather your family—or invite some friends to join you online—and pursue your passion for the arts together as you take part in the experience of your choice.

 

If you’ve never visited Dubai Opera, you can start by getting acquainted with this versatile venue through a 30-minute guided video tour, available exclusively through priceless.com. The dhow-shaped structure—designed by architect Janus Rostock—pays a striking tribute to Dubai’s maritime history while embracing the latest technology.

 

It will feel like you’re there as you explore a building created for seamless flexibility. You’ll see how the jaw-dropping venue can be converted from a 2,000-seat theatre to a concert hall or a flat-floor banquet hall in a matter of hours. Following behind your on-screen guide, you can imagine the wide variety of performances the centre stages, from opera and ballet to fashion runways, comedy shows, and art exhibitions. You’ll even get an insider’s look at the stunning rooftop restaurant and sky garden, which boasts breathtaking views of The Dubai Fountain and the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa.

Once you’ve seen what Dubai Opera looks like, find out what it sounds like by taking your seats for a performance streamed right to your device. Live concerts by some of the world’s top performers are being broadcast on Dubai Opera’s Instagram page, immersing fans in the music from the comfort of their living rooms.

 

The virtual season began on a spirited note as renowned Syrian violinist Mohamad Hamami performed a selection of Arabic and international favourites. Other noted musicians to perform online have included oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros, Jordanian soprano Zeina Barhoum, and Arabic fusion guitarist Kamal Musallam, who blends ancient musical traditions with jazz, rock, and other contemporary styles.
