A few of our favourite things to do this weekend

Just because the Eid break is over doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! This weekend is all about ballet at the Opera, theatre, acrobatics and a fun-filled art workshop for the kiddies…

ballet

Coppelia at Dubai Opera

The Dubai heat is getting to us and nothing is better than a family-friendly indoor ballet performance for a brief escape! Performed by the Russian State Ballet and the Orchestra of Siberia and set to Léo Delibes’ beautiful score, Coppélia is a captivating and entertaining family ballet based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann. This is a performance not to be missed so grab your tickets for the weekend!

When: Thursday, 15 September – Saturday, 17 September
Where: Dubai Opera
How much: From AED350

Potted Potter

Calls for Harry Potter fans (I mean, who isn’t?)! It’s time for a good laugh with the fam with the international smash hit Harry Potter parody! Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, this brilliant comedy will make you roar with laughter. This show is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).

Where: Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre, Dubai

Cirque Du Soleil – Varekai

Looking to treat the whole fam to some magic, head over to Cirque Du Soleil and watch these expert acrobats leap and jump across the stage with skill and precision like no other! This (previously sold out!) show returns with a brand new concept, called Varekai, which means “wherever”. We know it will keep the whole family on their toes, as it promises to delight audiences old and young alike. We can’t wait to see what’s in store!
