Sequin gloves at the ready: Thriller LIve's coming to DXB

To mark Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday, and celebrate the King of Pop’s extraordinary contribution to music, dance and artistry, our friends at Dubai Opera want to Rock With You from 26-30 March 2019 when Thriller Live comes to town.

Chief Executive at Dubai Opera reveals, “Thriller Live has been a smash hit show for more than a decade now in the West End and around the world and I can’t wait till the cast moonwalk their way onto the Dubai Opera stage.”

There’ll be an 8pm performance every night from Tuesday 26 to Saturday 30 March with two 2.30pm matinees on Friday and Saturday.

Looking for outfit inpso for your thriller night out? You Are Not Alone. For his 20th anniversary show in Milan for SS19, Philipp Plein created a tribute to Michael Jackson featuring a supermodel line-up of – wait for it – 30 Smooth Criminals and 30 Dirty Dianas (his words) rocking the requisite red biker leathers and sequins-strewn suiting to help you leave your nine-to-five up on the shelf.   

• Tickets are available from Dhs275 at dubaiopera.com with a 20 per cent discount on the swishest seats until 4 November 2018
