Opera Gallery

Gallery in Downtown Dubai
Lara Brunt / Lonely Planet

More an art showroom than a classically curated gallery, Opera caters to collectors of artistic heavyweights in genres as varied as pop art, calligraphy and landscapes. One section of the striking bilevel space is reserved for contemporary artists from the Middle East.

Opera was founded in Paris in 1994; the Dubai branch is one of a dozen around the world.
