The Angel of Music's arrival has now been announced. The Phantom of the Opera will make its Middle Eastern debut at Dubai Opera later this year, with shows scheduled between February 22 to March 10, 2024.
Widely renowned as the world's most popular musical, The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history, with several Tony Awards and Olivier Awards to its name.
Based on the novel by French journalist and mystery writer Gaston Leroux, the show tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House, before becoming enraptured by the talents of a young soprano, Christine. Having lured her in as his protégé, the phantom falls madly in love, then descends into jealous madness upon learning of Christine’s love affair with the opera’s patron, Raoul.
What follows is certainly not an exercise in understatement – with huge operatic numbers, a full corps de ballet, a dramatic unmasking of the disfigured ghost of the opera house and even a famous crashing chandelier, Phantom is as overblown and dramatic as its name might suggest.
