La Perle behind the scenes

La Perle behind the scenes

Franco Dragone, the mastermind behind well know shows in Macau and Las Vegas, has created a live theatrical masterpiece for Dubai. A state-of-the-art theatre was created for the show in Habtour City and CFD students were granted backstage access. Students got to meet the costume design team and were given a detailed look into how to design and create costumes that are suitable for an aqua performance. Since the aqua theatre produces waterfalls, torrents and rain; the costumes needed to be waterproof, not slippery and aesthetically up to the standards of the show. These costume designers had to create unique fit-to-measure outfits for 65 world-class performers.

Our students were then given front row seats to watch the breathtaking and extraordinary acrobatics, contortion, flying, diving and even motorcycles defying gravity acts. Franco Dragone was inspired by the spirit of Dubai and designed the show to mirror the city’s DNA from when it was nothing but a fisherman and pearl-diving village to where it is today. It was definitely a moving and memorable event.
