This month we’re... seeing... everything

Starting off with a show for families, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival (April 6-9) is our first stop, and we’ll be taking the kids to sing along to the much-loved classics from the Disney films, old and new – we’ll try not to sing louder than them! Next, as we don’t get many excuses to dress up as our favourite movie and comic characters, we will be heading to the Middle East Film and Comic Con (April 7-9), but we’re still deciding whether to be Superwoman or Storm for the weekend…

Then it’s off to the Gala Ballet of Bolshoi Theatre (April 8-9) to feel a bit more grown-up again. A once-in-a-lifetime ballet spectacular, it includes two of the world’s most renowned ballet dancers. Carrying on with our cultural evenings, we will be heading to The One and Only Royal Mirage to see the Wind Quintet of the Berlin Philharmonic (April 9) for a wonderfully romantic evening with beautiful music and captivating surroundings.

Then it’s off to The Sound of Music live on stage (until April 16). And, since we’ll have been indulging in a few of our favourite things, we’ll have to treat the men…

Since we’ll have been indulging in a few of our favourite things, we’ll have to treat the men in our lives to a performance by 
The Proclaimers at the Irish Village (April 28) and perhaps even a visit to the weekly Gaucho Cinema Sundays to enjoy a quiet night of great films and even better food. But because we can’t keep quiet for too long, we’ll also go to Love Music Your Way featuring Rudimental & Disclosure (April 29).

To bring the month to a close, we’ll be giving our ears a well-deserved break and take advantage of the Dubai Art Season, which is held throught the month, followed by a trip to Picasso and Miro, Passion & Poetry (again, open throughout April) to see world-famous masterpieces on display.
