A feast for the senses, La Perle

by Dragone, you’ll be immersed in the performance, with 270-degree views of the state-of-the-art stage as waterfalls and torrents flood it and drain in a matter of seconds. A one-of-a-kind live show, the story is inspired by the spirit of Dubai’s past, present, and future.
