Behind-the-scenes of La Perle

Created by Cirque du Soleil visionary Franco Dragone, Dubai's new theatre show La Perle promises to bring the mysticism of Las Vegas spectacles straight to Al Habtoor City

Vision spoke to Artistic Director Tara Young during rehearsals for the groundbreaking stage show, La Perle, hosted in the Middle East's first aqua theatre.

The performance will transport its viewers on a journey through the emirate’s heritage and into the future, taking the audience - and the performers themselves - "to places they've never gone before", as the acrobats plunge from high sky to deep water. 

As an ex-performer herself, Young shares the intricacies of putting on such an immersive, groundbreaking show, from a performance and production perspective.
