‘Joker’ to be screened with live orchestra at Dubai Opera

One of our favourite films of last year, Joker is getting the live orchestra treatment at Dubai Opera for two very special screenings.

For just two nights, Dubai Opera will be turned into a stunning film theatre. And the award-winning score and soundtrack will be played live by the amazing Dubai Opera orchestra.

We’re getting goosebumps just thinking about it!

Not only is this an incredible way to watch one of the best films of the last few years. It’s also the perfect excuse to head down to Dubai Opera for a dose of culture but were put off by the ‘Opera’ part!

The Joker live screening takes place on August 10 and 11 from 8pm. Tickets are AED250 per person.

And it’s fair to say the 2,000 capacity venue will be buzzing for the shows.

Joker was nominated for 10 Oscars including sound editing and sound mixing. And the score by Hildur Guðnadóttir is a ‘fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies – led by a lone cello – creating a melancholic shroud pinpricked with moments of hope, which unfolds gradually to become a fever pitch of disquieting tension.’

The DubaiLAD team will be out in force for Joker at Dubai Opera!
