Do you want to experience a unique night out in Dubai? Then the La Perle by Dragone live show is really something for you. The La Perle show is a unique aquatic and acrobatic live show on a stage where a group of experienced acrobats play the most breathtaking stunts in water and air alternated with special light, image and sound shows.
The unique thing about La Perle’s show is that the show does not take place on a normal stage, but on a stage that has a swimming pool. Also unique is that as a public you are almost among the acrobats thanks to the 270 degree grandstand that is built around the stage. The swimming pool contains no less than 2.7 million liters of water, allowing the acrobats to get the most spectacular stunts on and above the stage. The La Perle by Dragone show is inspired by the past, the present and the future of Dubai and was conceived by theater maker Franco Dragone and his artistic team. The result is a compelling and visual spectacle that you will spend days talking about.
La Perle has an experienced cast of 65 artists, stuntmen and acrobats who each show their own skills in the show. The artists dive down from a height of 25 meters into the water and fly through the theater at high speeds, so it sometimes seems as if the gravity for these acrobats nothing.
