Phantom of the Opera at Dubai Opera

🗓 February 22 - March 10, 2024 📍Dubai, United Arab Emirates

One of Andrew Lloyd Webber's greatest masterpieces of all time, The Phantom of the Opera returns to Dubai Opera after four years. Set in 19th-century Paris and based on the classic French novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, this acclaimed production tells the story of a musical genius, The Phantom, who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent of a young soprano named Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passion collide.

Since debuting in London's West End in October 1986, it has taken the world by storm with over 13,900 performances on Broadway, has been watched by over 160 million people worldwide and won over 70 major theatre awards.
