We've got some great news for musical theatre fans.
Eight more shows have just been added to the Middle East debut of worldwide hit musical Phantom of the Opera.
Based on the novel by Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera captured the attention of theatre and musical fans worldwide – including in Dubai – and following popular demand it will now run for a total of three weeks in the city.
Broadway Entertainment Group and Dubai Opera has confirmed that the show will now run from Wednesday October 16 until Wednesday November 6 with performances every night at 8pm except Sundays.
There will also be 2pm matinees each week on Friday and Saturday, giving fans an extra chance to catch the second-longest running West End musical of all time.
Jasper Hope, chief executive of Dubai Opera, commented: “We are honoured to be able to host one of the world’s most iconic musicals at Dubai Opera and to be able to give audiences from across the region a chance to see the phenomenon first-hand.
“It has been fantastic to witness the incredible excitement for this show from fans near and far, and we’re delighted that this extension to the run will now give more people the opportunity to experience this out-of-this-world production in the region’s premier entertainment destination.”
