In celebration of the spookiest night of the year, ‘It’s a Musical Halloween’ will bring famous fright-night soundtracks to life at Expo 2020 Dubai through a spectacular rock opera on October 31.
The 60-minute musical and dance performances will look back at some of stage and screen’s most terrifying soundtracks, paying tribute to music from Phantom of the Opera, Little Shop of Horrors, Thriller, Beetlejuice and more.
Visitors can expect musicians and dancers to be in full costume, inspired by the horror films and shows, when It’s a Musical Halloween makes its premiere at the Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre at 1900 GST, showing again at 2100 GST.
