Permanent theatre is coming to Dubai. Theatre lovers are counting down to the opening of La Perle, the highly-anticipated aqua show by Dragone, which is set to open at its permanent home base in a state-of-the art, one-of-a-kind aqua theatre at Al Habtoor City. Joanna Andrews reports…
Tickets are now on sale for the highly touted production which will open in August 2017. The permanent show, located in the heart of Al Habtoor City, in The Atrium, is nestled between the three hotel luxury hotels. It is the region’s first resident show.
The 1,300-capacity venue is out of this world, ready to impress visitors. Much of it has been kept a secret, but what we do know is that the set will feature a dry stage which within seconds can be flooded with2.7 million litres of water, that can disappear at the click of a finger.
The high-energy show, brought to Dubai by the Al Habtoor Group, is a live masterpiece, produced by legendary Creative Director Franco Dragone, famed for theatrical spectacles including Celine Dion A New Day, Le Rêve (Las Vegas) and The House of Dancing Water(Macau). It is expected to wow audiences from far and wide, testing the boundaries of human art with the artists performing gravity-defying stunts.
Some 65 artists from more than 20 countries will perform twice a day, five times a week. They include acrobats, aerialists, and contortionists who will perform mind-blowing aqua and aerial feats such as diving from 25 metres in the air, and flying across the stage at speeds of 15/km/h to captivating lighting and sound.
Mohammed K. Al Habtoor, Vice Chairman & CEO, Al Habtoor Group, said, “This is a pivotal moment for live entertainment not only in Dubai, but for the region too. The road to this moment has been an incredible journey, and we look forward to sharing this world-class show with audiences.”
One thing can be certain is prepare to be mesmerized by a show influenced by sights and sounds of the region that promises to impress with an enticing storyline told by highly-skilled performers.
