- Architecture of contemporary theaters
Dubai Opera House
Masrah Al Qasba theater
The Dubai Opera House was worked out as a result of a major international competition; the winner was the project by Zaha Hadid (2006–2008). However, later it was decided to abandon that project, as well as the original concept of the Opera House as a major multifunctional cultural center. The Dubai Opera House was built in 2016 by architect Janus Rostock. The purpose of this article is to compare the architectural concepts and projects created for the Dubai Opera House, to identify and to analyze the main reasons that influenced the change in its architectural and artistic image and functional components, as well as to trace the role and place of the new theater both in the cultural life of the United Arab Emirates and in the field of architectural and spectacular wonders that have been presented to the world in recent years.
