Habtoor Al Habtoor, Craig Hartenstine, Executive Producer and Andy Levey, Head of Marketing spoke at length about how the show supports His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision for 2020 and that La Perle marks an evolution for entertainment in Dubai.

Craig Hartenstine, Executive Producer, La Perle, said: “As travelers around the world are increasingly looking for new and innovative experiences during their vacations, there is a growing focus on the entertainment industry and as La Perle is not only a first for the region, the show will also encapsulate the spirit of Dubai, providing tourists with a show that’s not only visually stunning, but becomes a cultural experience that one can only be part of in Dubai – it cannot be recreated anywhere else in the world.”

In the show, the cast will perform breath-taking aqua and aerial feats in the tailor-made, state of the art, intimate 1,300 seat theater. The theater itself will feature an ‘aqua-stage’ filled with 2.7 million liters of water and will have the ability to change from a dry platform to aquatic stage and vice versa. Daredevil performers will dive into the water-filled stage from a height of 25 meters and fly around the auditorium on high-powered winches at a speed 15 km/h. With this cutting-edge stagecraft and state of the art technology fused together La Perle will be a visually stunning spectacle in, on and above water.
