Located on the corniche of the city of Kalba, Sharjah’s brand new Floating theatre will be called the ‘Kalba Floating Theatre’.     Recently, His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah visited the project and also approved its opening.

The theatre has a distinct shape and looks like a seashell. The beautiful theatre is surrounded by water basins –  a design that was proposed by the Ruler of Sharjah himself. The Kalba Floating Theatre is linked to the corniche, providing uninhibited views of the Kalba Corniche and the Arabian Sea. The theatre will showcase various facilities to attract visitors throughout the year.
