Dubai’s New Las Vegas Style Show is Getting Ready to Launch

If you love Cirque du Soleil, get ready to be blown away by what’s coming next. The city is preparing to launch the region’s first ‘aqua-theatre’ show La Perle Dubai on August 31… and it’s going to be the hottest ticket in town.

La Perle is a dynamic Las Vegas-style show that will feature stunning aerial acrobatics in a purpose-built theatre at Al Habtoor City. The stage alone holds 2.7 million litres of water in a 10-storey building that resembles a futuristic opera house.

The show is the brainchild of Franco Dragone, the man who created and directed Celine Dion’s Vegas residency show A New Day, as well The House of Dancing Water in Macau.

More than 65 cast members will be tumbling, swinging and diving from a height of 35 metres, alongside live musicians every night. The state-of-the-art venue is big enough to accommodate 1,300 guests in what looks set to be Dubai’s next big attraction.

Don’t miss it:

La Perle by Dragone premieres on August 31 at Al Habtoor City, with performances running from Tuesday to Friday, 7pm and 9:30pm; and Saturday, 4pm and 7pm. Tickets start at AED 400 from
