La Perle Dubai is a permanent theatre show in Dubai, the first of its kind; the story is based on the spirit of Dubai. The show is presented at the heart of Downtown Dubai, at Al Habtoor City, and was designed by the legendary Art Director Franco Dragone, who is known for producing The House of Dancing Water in Macau & Le Reve in Las Vegas.
The story of La Perle is told through an aqua-based performance that combines breathtaking stunts, acrobatics, and stunning special effects. With live stunts and special effects on stage, the stage show is designed to captivate kids and adults alike.
You can purchase La Perle tickets on their website, or at the venue counter with a valid photo ID and your credit card.
What is La Perle Dubai?
This theatrical extravaganza was opened in September 2017 as part of the entertainment at Al Habtoor City, located within the V-Hotel. It is the brainchild of Franco Dragone, the founder of Dragone Studios, a Belgian company that specializes in large scale theatre productions.
Here, both theatrics and stunts are inspired by Dubai’s cultural heritage. Immerse yourself in dazzling performances, images, and technology. Aqua and aerial stunts, as well as special effects in the aquatic theatre, are brought to life by state-of-the-art technology.
World-class performers from 23 different countries perform acrobatics, contortions, flying, diving, motorcycle stunts, and gravity-defying stunts. As a unique feature of La Perle Dubai, the stage has been made specifically for the show, while the majority of shows have been adapted to fit the stage they’re hosted on.
At La Perle Dubai, 270-degree seating wraps around the theatre, giving its audiences a unique and intimate experience. The performances of La Perle Dubai take place twice a night, with 10 performances per week, in a custom built theatre meant for the event.
