Jersey Boys, the latest musical to come to Dubai Opera, tells the story of 1960s rock ‘n roll group The Four Seasons. The Broadway musical revolves around four men from New Jersey, their musical success and their relationships off-stage.

Presented in a documentary-style format, the musical is split into the four seasons and each segment is narrated by a different member of the band.

Songs include December 1963 (Oh What a Night), Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Sherry, Walk Like a Man, Bye Bye Baby and Big Girls Don’t Cry.

In total, Jersey Boys has won 57 awards worldwide including Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical, Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical, Best Lighting Design of a Musical and the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
