Same Old Beautiful Theatre… but with New Safety Measures!

Welcome back to the oldest theatre in the UAE!

Due to the current pandemic issues, our safety measures have obviously needed to change but the magic and history of the QE2 and the theatre remain.


Theatre by QE2 is committed to providing you with a safe environment in alignment with the UAE COVID-19 safety protocols.
