“We were a bit like start-up; we had to create a market,” Jasper Hope, CEO of Dubai Opera, told Arabian Business at the end of last year. It was a timely reminder that the $330m Emaar venue had to build its reputation from scratch after opening in August 2016.

With a non-stop roster of top shows playing to full houses ever since, that job has been well and truly achieved. Dubai now has a world-class venue and a brand to be proud of.
