Located between Europe, Asia and Africa, Dubai gets the best of the East and the West. The Emirate has a special place in its heart for art and encourages artistic experimentations and innovative collaborations.

You'll find concerts, theatrical shows, musicals as well as other live music entertainment raising the visibility of the city's theatre scene. In fact, Dubai has its own Opera House, which opened in 2016 and can seat up to 2000 people.

With choices ranging from classical music to Bollywood masala and from world music to local Emirati talent, Dubai’s performing art centres are a good place to plug into the international scene.
