Almost showtime at La Perle - the new state-of the art aqua theatre in Dubai

Dubai’s most anticipated opening of the year, the state-of-the-art aqua theatre, La Perle, is just days away. Opening in September 2017, the show, produced by cultural creative company Dragone, directed by legendary artistic director Franco Dragone and brought to Dubai by Al Habtoor Group, is set to become one of the must visit entertainment events in Dubai.

The new 1,300 seat theatre, located in the heart of Al Habtoor City, is purpose-built to host Dubai’s first permanent show. A breath taking fusion of artistic performance, creative imagery and ground-breaking technology, La Perle defines the future of global live entertainment.

With only 14 rows and seating 270 degrees around the aqua-stage, every seat offers an intimate and completely different perspective as the awe-inspiring action unfolds and visitors witness a visual feast of high-tech, 3D projections, transporting them to worlds they have never even dreamed of.

Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Founding Chairman, Al Habtoor Group, commented, “A world-class theatre and show of this magnitude takes years to prepare for. It will set a new benchmark for the entertainment sector and put Dubai on the map as the go-to destination for first-class live theatre. We look forward to welcoming our first guests.”  

With an international cast of 65 skilled artists, each demonstrating their extraordinary set of superhuman aquatic and aerial stunts during a live 90-minute show, the theatre has been custom-built to provide a truly immersive and visually captivating entertainment experience.

Franco Dragone, Creative Director of La Perle, said: “It is a thrill to present the La Perle theatre to the public for the first time. An experience like no other, La Perle sets a new milestone in world-class entertainment with a show so spectacular that we had to build a theatre around it. We are extremely proud to present this unique project and can’t wait to welcome the first guests to immerse them in the wonderful world of La Perle.”

La Perle show is set to take place twice a night, five days a week. Performances run from Tuesday to Friday at 7:00pm and 9:30pm, and Saturday at 4pm and 7pm starting from August 31st. Tickets start from AED 400.
