La Perle Show Franco Dragone Dubai Al Habtoor City

DUBAI : Le Perle Show – First Impressions & VIDEO

65 performers, 1300 seats within 10 floors high, custom build theatre, 2.7mil litres dive pool, mapping projections on all surfaces and 135 speakers to create the most immersive experience.

All those impressive numbers should make up for one big unforgettable spectacle, but unfortunately, last weekend opening shows were far from that.

Speaking for myself, the expectations were running high. Previously experiencing over 10 Dragone’s and Cirque du Soleil shows, I really feel cheated and immensely dissapointed by seeing La Perle at Al Habtoor City theatre.



The show is obviously under-rehearsed, many of the performers just keep running around to fill the space and except for a couple of “finished” sequences, the entire piece is rather underwhelming.

Many tricks and technical elements are not operational and some of the artists don’t even get to do their stunts.

In my opinion, it felt like a preview rehearsal show and therefore the guests shouldn’t be asked to pay full price tickets!

The biggest flop was the ending part with a huge empty structure coming up and down. This piece was meant to be full of performers ( I guess ).



The story of La Perle supposed to be inspired by Dubai and its rich cultural past, vibrant present and aspirational future. There isn’t any obvious connection of that in the show and why is one of the main characters Chinese dragon ?


La Perle commencement somehow reminds me rushed opening of Dubai Parks and Resorts on December 2016. Nothing was finished, tickets were full price…”word of mouth” spreads quick and now, the parks are barely surviving.

I maybe sound too critical, but as a big fan of Cirque du Soleil and Dragone’s shows, this was not good!

But it’s not all bad, the theatre is amazing, seats slightly narrow, but otherwise comfortable and the staff helpful and welcoming.  You can bring purchased food and drinks inside the theatre and take as many photos and videos as you like.

…just wait few more months before purchasing the tickets…
