Al Majaz Amphitheatre is a unique cultural template introduced for the first time in the Emirate of Sharjah. It is an integrated art platform that offers world-class cultural, theatrical and musical performances, making art the message that we convey to the world.
We at Al Majaz Amphitheatre are proud that it reflects the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the man of culture and theatre.
Our responsibility emanates from the significance of the artistic and cultural movement which we seek to foster in the Emirate of Sharjah and the wider UAE. Hence, the elements that underlie the Amphitheatre guarantee the audience a rich experience of creativity and innovation.
Home to a melting pot of cultures from around the globe. We welcome all cultures and draw from their richness to offer something that is creative and takes our unique audiences to a higher level of aesthetic experience.
