Week 4 – Sophisticated Saturday nights

It’s time to get those date nights that I mentioned off to a fabulous start… and what better way to do it than at dinner and a show?!

We started off with dinner at the reasonably-newly opened Sean Connolly restaurant on the rooftop of Dubai Opera. Now as we know, I know nothing about world-class chefs, but I’ve been told that this dude is the shizzle… so why not?! 🙂

(taken from a Google search)

They offer a 2- or 3-course pre-show set menu, alternatively you can order off the a la carte, or bar snack menus… no shortage of choices here! And everything sounds SO yum!

We opted to try out a starter on the a la carte menu to share, because it sounded sooo delicious: watermelon, strawberry, tomato, torn mint, whipped feta. YUM! And we then had the 2-course pre-show menu. J opted for the sushi & chicken, and I had the waldorf salad and steak. Everything was just fabulous!

We then made our way to our seats and got comfy – ready to enjoy the show…. and enjoy we did!

I’d have to say that while it’s not one of the best shows I’ve seen at the opera (not much can beat Mary Poppins), it was still thoroughly enjoyable – and those voices! Man, I had goose bumps when “Don’t cry for me, Argentina” was sung. Absolutely gorgeous!

The show is only on until 3 February so if you don’t have tickets and are planning to go, best you get buying! And I highly recommend a visit to Sean Connolly pre-show, even if only for a cocktail 😉
