Dancers rising from the shadows of the stage, emerging from within smoky corners. Acrobats flying gracefully into the air, sheathed in glitter and colour. Golden orbs and whimsical lights, daring dives into swimming pools and impossible leaps from heart-stopping heights – La Perle Dubai brings you this, and much more, promising to leave you on the edge of your seat.
The atmosphere that engulfs the audience at La Perle Dubai is one of intense drama and action, and is likely to transport you away from the dunes of Dubai into a world of magic and wonder. The show is directed by Franco Dragone, the critically acclaimed contemporary theatre director of Cirque du Soleil, known for their extravagant Las Vegas shows. La Perle Dubai, his recent masterpiece performed in world-class facilities, is a show that promises to entertain adults and children alike.
Why You Should See This
Although Las Vegas, New York, and London have their fair share of musicals and shows, La Perle Dubai is unique, not only because of its presence in Dubai – a country known for its luxurious shopping, skyscrapers, and sand dunes – but also because it is the city’s first resident live show. Director Franco Dragone, who called La Perle ‘a new kind of theatre’, spared no expense in his casting of the show, which hosts 65 artists from across 23 different countries, each with their own special talents, be it skydiving, aquatics, acrobatics, or acting.
La Perle Dubai is hosted by Al Habtoor City in a special theatre designed specifically for the show. Be prepared to be amazed by 90 minutes of courageous dives into the on-stage pool, flying acts as quick at 15 km/h, and lighting systems that may leave you breathless for more!

Ever heard of the Globe of Death sequence? Watch it at La Perle Dubai, where five men on motorcycles perform stunts that leave you fearing for their lives. If you’re the kind of person who needs variety, La Perle has it all - the show also portrays a collection of vignettes that involves synchronized leaps, flawless acrobatics, dives into the pool from 25m, breath-taking projections, and large golden puppets sidling onto the stage. Add to this the theatricality of the actors, the unique ‘aqua-stage’, and lighting, and the visual effects of La Perle leave a deep impression on every member of the audience.
Right from the moment you enter the theater, you'll be amazed by the great preparation that ash obviously gone into this show. And although the story line is somewhat confusing, I actually liked the sort of cubist effect achieved by the lasers, waterfalls, acrobats, dancers, screens, and other wonderfully synchronized elements.
The performance, effects, storyline etc was amazing! Everyone did a great job! Kudos. We really did enjoy it.
