DUBAI - World's tallest building? Check. Man-made islands in the sea? Check. Indoor ski slope? Check. Now it's time for opera and art.

Dubai, which burst onto the global stage with a series of extravagant projects before being subdued by a crippling debt crisis, has now revived plans for an opera house in a bid to boost tourism.
