As well as bringing great entertainment to the region, Dubai Opera will also help boost Dubai’s economy, with Jasper Hope, the Chief Executive of Dubai Opera, saying: “I have no doubt that Dubai Opera will be a boost to the economy. It’s not just a cultural boost; it’s also economic as it’s about having people enjoy Dubai for longer.
