The Dubai Opera House is the cultural centre of the proposed Lagoons district of Dubai, United Arab Emirates with preparatory work underway in anticipation of groundbreaking. This development will accommodate an opera house with a 2,500 seating capacity, an 800-seat playhouse, a 5,000-square-metre (54,000 sq ft) arts gallery, a performing arts school, and a '6-star' themed hotel on a purpose-built island in Dubai Creek. It is also said that it will feature two libraries, an outdoor theatre, and a marina. It will be the only opera house in the Persian Gulf region.
