The Dubai Opera has announced that the blockbuster musical will come to Dubai in August 2019 and tickets will start selling in the New Year. 

Considered to be one of the most popular musicals ever, The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius who lurks in the depths of the Paris Opera House and falls in love with a beautiful young soprano called Christin. It is the longest running musical in history, celebrating it's 13,000th show earlier this year. 

This is the first time the musical will be brought to the GCC, with 130 cast, crew and orchestra members taking over the stage. 

Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, the show is well established and recognised worldwide, grossing more than US$5.6 billion in its 22-year run, and has been seen by more than 130 million across 145 cities and 27 countries.

Here's what you can expect to see when it opens in August next year...
