Dubai’s Madinat Theatre may be a perfect destination for holidaymakers wanting to take in a stage show.

A trip to the theatre may not be the first thing that springs to mind for those who have booked a holiday to Dubai, but fans of the stage may be pleasantly surprised by the shows on offer in the emirate.

The Madinat Theatre, which opened in 2004 and is Dubai’s first purpose-built theatre, is located in the Souk Madinat Jumeirah and has hosted productions ranging from dramas to musicals.

Among the upcoming productions at the Madinat is Swan Lake, which tells the famous story of an evil sorcerer turning a princess into a swan using a curse.

A total of 26 dancers from First Group Theatre take part in the production, which was a hit with audiences when performed as part of the Grand Gala Ballet last September.

Also forthcoming at the theatre is The Fab Four, a tribute to the Beatles that covers the Liverpool Band’s entire musical career that runs from September 6th to 8th 2012.
