Dubai Opera House is a multi-format, performing arts centre which is located within The Opera District in Downtown Dubai. It is being developed by Emaar Properties to host a variety of performances and events including theatre, opera, ballet, concerts, conferences and exhibitions. Its plans were announced in March 2012 and it was completed in 2016. It opened on 31 August 2016.
The 1901-seat performing arts centre was designed by Janus Rostock of Atkins. The theatre was conceived and briefed by Theatre Projects Consultants. It can be converted into a traditional theatre, concert hall, banquet hall or exhibition space. Using hydraulic lifts and seating wagons to relocate 900 of the 2,000 seats, the space can be used for other events while the extra seating is stored in garages beneath the theatre.
Dubai Opera House is designed to resemble a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel, in which the 'bow' of the structure will house the opera's main stage, orchestra and seating, while the elongated 'hull' will have waiting areas, taxi drop-off areas, and parking.
