Launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, the Opera District in Downtown Dubai is set to become the cultural hub of the region.
At the heart of the Opera District is Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format venue for opera, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events, and seasonal programmes. Developed by EMAAR Properties and with lighting and audio technology installed by LSI Projects, Dubai Opera will feature state-of-the-art audio-visual technology and support systems to ensure an unrivalled events experience.
LSI PROJECTS is an internationally experienced Entertainment Technology Projects Company providing professional installation of Sound, Lighting, Audio Visual and Suspension solutions for a wide range of performance and commercial venues such as Theatres, Conference & Convention Centres and Concert Halls world wide. For the project VDC Trading supplied thousands of metres of Van Damme cable including Van Damme Cat 5E digital cable, Van Damme Classic Quad Microphone cable, Van Damme 75 ohm Video Coax cable, Van Damme 8 Pair AES 110 ohm Digigrade Green Series cable and Van Damme 1 Pair Digilog LSZH Ecoflex Purple Series cable plus connectors, stage boxes and related accessories.
As iconic in appearance as the world-famous Sydney Opera House, the design of the Dubai Opera takes its inspiration from the traditional sailing vessels of the Arabian Gulf, the classic wooden dhows that are synonymous with the world-famous Dubai Creek.
The bow of the structure will contain Dubai Opera’s main stage, orchestra and seating areas, as well as the proposed sky garden and restaurants, while the elongated hull area will house waiting areas, taxi-drop off area, and parking.
