The new 1,300 seat theatre, located in the heart of Al Habtoor City, has been purpose-built to host Dubai’s first resident entertainment show and will perform to a full house on for its first two shows Thursday, August 31 at 7pm and Friday, September 1 at 7pm.

Produced by the cultural and creative company Dragone, directed by artistic director Franco Dragone, and brought to Dubai by Al Habtoor Group, La Perle represents a new era in the regional entertainment industry.

La Perle executive producer Craig Hartenstine said: “It’s fantastic that we have sold out our first performances of La Perle, the excitement for the opening night on the 31st August has swept the nation and it’s no wonder – this is truly the best show in the world and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
