To celebrate the forthcoming Middle Eastern debut of The Phantom of the Opera, the world’s tallest building, Dubai's Burj Khalifa, was illuminated for 120 seconds with an audio-visual show.
Watch the video above to see the musical's main characters, Christine and the Phantom, beamed onto the skyscraper, while scenes from the chorus were performed for spectators. The skyscraper reaches 828 meters in height.
Beginning October 16 for a limited run, audiences will have the opportunity to witness the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical at the Dubai Opera. The United Arab Emirates engagement is part of an extensive worldwide tour of The Phantom of the Opera, which opens in Manila (February 28–March 17) and then heads to Singapore (April 24–May 26), Kuala Lumpur (June 15–June 30), and Tel Aviv (August 12–August 31), ahead of future tour dates to be announced.
