Les Miserables, the legendary musical that is all set to make its GCC premiere at the Dubai Opera next month, has added more shows to its itinerary.

Originally scheduled to run from November 10 to 24, the critically acclaimed show will now run until December 2.

Les Miserables is the world’s longest running musical and is one of the most popular. Based on Victor Hugo’s classic, the show has won more than 100 awards over the years, and inspired the Oscar-winning 2012 movie version.

“I am really thrilled to hear that the demand to see my spectacular new production of Les Miserables, with its brilliant international cast, has been so great that Dubai Opera has now extended our season by a further week,” said producer Cameron Mackintosh in a statement.

The musical has to its credit classic songs such as I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home and Do You Hear the People Sing?.

“With over half the tickets sold already so early we feared a lot of residents and visitors might miss out on the chance to experience the world’s longest running musical when it receives its long-overdue GCC premiere in November. Being able to add this additional week means many more people will now be able to enjoy this wonderful show at Dubai Opera. But seats are limited so book now to avoid disappointment,” said Jasper Hope, Dubai Opera CEO.

Tickets, starting at Dh275, are available on dubaiopera.com.
