Go watch! La Perle by Dragone

Last month, we had the opportunity to watch La Perle at Al Habtoor City. It was AMAZING! well more than amazing really, no photo or video you see online will do any justice to what the show has to offer. If you are clueless on what it is, read up!

La Perle by Dragone

is the first permanent show in the region, produced by cultural creative company Dragone, directed by the legendary artistic director Franco Dragone and brought to Dubai by the Al Habtoor Group. La Perle is a live entertainment, taking place in a tailor-made aqua theatre.

So many things are happening in the show, don’t dare blink or you will end up missing something. One moment someone is walking on the ceiling then you will notice another performer gracefully dancing at the corner.

Aqua Theatre

The stage gets flooded and dry in a few seconds. I was scared that performers might fall in the pool while doing their routine. At one point, it was raining!

More snippets of the show can be seen on my Instagram highlights, here.

And more on our channel.

La Perle Fun Facts

Dragone, in La Louvière, Belgium. Today one of the world’s most sought-after artistic
directors, he is renowned for having invented a new genre in the 1980’s and 90’s. The
shows he created during his early days (Saltimbanco, Quidam, Mystère, Alegria, O)

shows still receive nightly standing ovations.
