Why you need to see Dubai’s La Perle

If you haven’t gone to La Perle yet, then we don’t know what you’re waiting for.

One of the biggest, most ambitious shows in Dubai’s history opened to huge fanfare back at the end of August. And the hype it received was entirely justified.

The show, directed by legendary producer and director Franco Dragone, rolled into town with the promise that “every city has a secret, La Perle is Dubai’s”. Dragone is previously known for his work on Le Revê in Las Vegas and The House of Dancing Water in Macau, and set to work on creating a stunning visual and acrobatic spectacular, as immersive as it is breath-taking and gripping.

La Perle is Dubai’s first permanent theatre show, for which a purpose built, 1,300-seat venue was created. With water being an intrinsic part of the show, the theatre has been designed to store, use and recycle 2.5 million litres of water per performance, with rain, dry ice, mist, and flash flooding all part of the spectacular.

The 90-minute show fuses immersive artistic performances with imagery and innovative use of technology. While a cast of more than 60 acrobats, dancers and performers leap, vanish into the central pool, and leave you on the edge of your seat for the entire performance. La Perle comprises more than 130 world-class artistic, athletic and technical team members from 23 countries, who bring this riveting show to life twice a night, five days a week.

We went as soon as we could get our hands on tickets, and the show flew by in the blink of an eye.
