Othello Coming to Dubai Opera
The good news is one of the greatest Shakespearean plays are coming to the Dubai Opera, the bad news is you’ll have to wait till next year.

We all know the classic story of Othello, right? Well, a performing arts group are bringing the sad story to the Dubai Opera for all of us to weep to. Set from the 31st of January to the 2nd of February, it marks the start of the opera’s venture into plays as it’ll be the first of its kind performed at the venue.

Although the play is quite old, it’s main message is still surprisingly relevant in today’s society, considering that prejudice is still a massive issue around the world. The theatre group is none other than the English Touring Theatre, in co-production with Oxford Playhouse and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory.

The tickets will be going on sale at 12pm this Tuesday, prices starting at Dhs150. Make sure you get it before it’s too late! Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
