Dubai Opera House

Client: Emaar Properties

Consultant: Atkins

Main Contractor: Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC)

MEP Contractor: BK Gulf

Dubai Opera is part of The Opera District within Downtown Dubai. The 2,000-seat performing arts centre was designed by Janus Rostock of Atkins. The theatre can be converted into a traditional theatre, concert hall and banquet hall or exhibition space. Using hydraulic lifts and seating wagons to relocate 900 of the 2,000 seats, the space can be used for other events while the extra seating is stored in garages beneath the theatre.
