La Perle will feature a cast of 65 world-class artists performing breath-taking aqua (in, on and above water) and aerial feats that will definitely be jaw-dropping and visually stunning.

Hyping up the show are the daredevil performers who will dive into the water-filled stage from a 35 metres height and fly around the auditorium on a high-powered winches at a speed of 4 metres per second. Of course, this is on top of the Arabic cultural shows.

The name La Perle displays the style and high-calibre of each distinguished performer around the world and become treasures in the creating this masterpiece. This will be an unmissable one of a kind theatre experience and an iconic show for Dubai, offering an unmatched immersive never been seen before production that can only be delivered in a state of the art purpose-built theatre.
