Dubai Opera will also stage musical theatre, fashion shows, jazz, comedy, family shows and a full range of live entertainment. The venue opened on 31st August with a performance from global superstar Plácido Domingo and Showforce was delighted to be part of the story from the beginning and on hand to help deliver the first event at the iconic venue.

We have implemented a global solution to service this contract and I believe our personnel will fully complement the versatility of this exciting new space. This contract and venue changes ways of working and will push industry standards in the region. We are excited to play an integral part in the venue's journey from the start and are looking forward to a successful partnership that will deliver stand out global events over the next three years.”
