Since its opening night Dubai Opera, which recently unveiled the highly anticipated Beth Cullen Kerridge marble sculpture, has delivered a seemingly neverending list of top tier shows in a range of categories, including Les Misérables, The Barber of Seville and The Nutcracker, among a whole host of others. Today it announced the latest addition to its stellar line-up, much to the delight of the region.
The Dubai Opera stage will be home to Mary Poppins from May 1-18, 2017. With the news that the award-winning musical will make its Middle Eastern debut next year, producer Cameron Mackintosh said in a statement, "It's hard to believe that it is already 12 years since Mary Poppins first landed on the London stage... I'm delighted to be bringing [Mary Poppins] to Dubai for the very first time."
Tickets will go on sale for the show on Sunday November 27 at 9am local time on Dubai Opera's website.
