In the past few years, Dubai Opera has thrilled us with a number of phenomenal musicals from Mamma Mia! to Chicago, the Musical; Footloose and so much more. This year, the performing arts centre will be home to yet another highly popular performance – Matilda the Musical.

The multi-award-winning performance by The Royal Shakespeare Company will be held from Tuesday, October 3 to 15. Tickets are now on sale on dubaiopera.com. It is based on the book of popular author, Roald Dahl.

The joys of Dahl’s work have survived several generations of children, and numerous adaptations – both good and bad. His wickedly delightful books – from The Witches and The BFG to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and James & The Giant Peach – tend to champion misfits and disparage bullies. In other words, they often make kids feel better about being different – a universally acknowledged part of growing up.

This exceptional production is directed by Matthew Warchus and scripted by Dennis Kelly – both Tony Award winners – with original songs by Tim Minchin. There’s a reason why this live show has picked up over 99 international awards, with 24 of them for Best Musical, over the years, and that’s because of its internationally acclaimed team, including set and costume designer Rob Howell, choreographer Peter Darling and others.

Matilda, a story about a little girl, unloved by her parents. She joins a school run by the wicked Miss Trunchbull, a headmistress that thrives on abusing all the schoolchildren. But Matilda is a genius with magical telekinetic powers, which she uses (with the guidance of her kind form teacher Miss Honey) to lead her classmates to liberation and to help them stand up to their bullies.

It’s a wonderful story that’s inspired generations of fans, teaching important life lessons about how to find your voice and use it, and that chosen family is just as valid as your birth one.

Come, join in the fun as Matilda uses her vivid imagination and sharp mind to change her destiny and defeat Miss Trunchbull.
