Dubai is like Disneyland for adults (and kids too), but it can be overwhelming and time-consuming to filter through everything our gorgeous city has to offer on the weekends. Let’s be honest, after you’ve worked all week long, the last thing you want to do is waste your precious R&R time sifting through offers and websites. Sometimes, you miss the best events because it takes too long to find them.
Savoir Flair is here to help start your weekend off on the right note. We are giving you our favorite picks for what you should be doing this weekend in Dubai. So whether it’s a much-needed day at the beach, a well-deserved spa treatment, or a day of adventure, you have never felt more on holiday than you will in Dubai this weekend.
Like Quentin Tarantino? Go See The Stage Adaptation of 'Reservoir Dogs'
If you love Quentin Tarantino movies, then you are going to love Sid Abbas‘ stage adaptation of the infamous movie, Reservoir Dogs. Directed by Satyen Chandiramani and starring Mario Silva, Chineme Prince, and Bryan MacKenzie, Reservoir Dogs follows a gang of criminals before and after a botched jewelry store robbery and the subsequent hunt for what may be a snitch in their midst. Guns, guts, and glory reign chaos supreme as the stellar cast and epic dialogue take the audience on a rollercoaster of a journey.
“There are some stories that transcend mediums,” says Abbas, who is also a member of the cast. “Reservoir Dogs is one of them. It doesn’t matter if it’s being played on television, projected on a silver screen, performed on stage, or being orated over radio. The tale is gripping regardless of where and how it’s being told.” “It’s just a lot of fun, to be honest.” adds Silva. “I can’t wait to get out there and do it again, and keep improving on what we’ve built. You gotta see it.”
Reservoir Dogs runs from November 18 to 21 at The Junction in Alserkal Avenue. Tickets can be found on bookmyshow.com.
The Bohemians Take On Dubai Opera
Freddie Mercury left us too early. But his genius lives on with The Bohemians, a group dedicated to paying homage to Queen, the world’s most theatrical, dramatic, and genius rock band of all time, since 1996. Rob Comer, singer and pianist, takes on the role of ‘Freddie’ in an outrageous, realistic, and uncanny impersonation of Queen’s infamous front man. He is joined on stage by the equally talented Christopher Gregory, who has Brian May‘s “electric guitar virtuosity” down to the details.
In The Best of Queen, audiences can expect to hear their most loved classics from Queen’s repertoire as well as a show that truly captures the heart of the beloved band. If you were never able to see Queen in person, or even if you were, catch the Bohemians this weekend at Dubai Opera for a show to champion all shows. They originally sold out for the 19th but have added another show on the 20th due to popular demand, so best to get your tickets now. Don’t want to miss this Bicycle Race.
