It’s the world’s most popular musical – and Dubai has been named as the next city to host multi-award winning show, The Phantom of The Opera.

Making it’s Middle Eastern debut at the Dubai Opera in the autumn of 2019, registration for pre-sale ahead of ticket release opens today, December 13, for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s blockbuster production, which has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards on Broadway and four Olivier Awards in the West End.

Crowned with the title of the longest running show in Broadway history on January 9, 2006, when it celebrated its 7,486th performance, on January 1 this year, Phantom of the Opera celebrated its 13,000th performance, with the Broadway production celebrated an amazing 30 years on Broadway that same month.

“The Phantom of the Opera is a musical theatre phenomenon – Dubai Opera audiences will love the original London production of this brilliant story of romance and intrigue with its incredible special effects, set to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hauntingly beautiful score, when it arrives for a very limited run next Autumn,’ said Jasper Hope, Chief Executive at Dubai Opera. ‘Whether you’re a fan already or this will be your first time, do not miss out on the GCC premier of this extraordinary production, which is expected to be in overwhelming demand by audiences.”

With 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breathtaking special effects and more than 230 costumes by the late international designer late Maria Björnson, the show contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous and stirring music, including The Phantom of the Opera, Think of Me and Music of the Night. The original cast recording, with over 40 million copies sold worldwide, is also the best-selling cast recording of all time. Need more reason to pre-register for tickets? We thought not.
