The water show will offer live entertainment, and will have special effects to create a giant waterfall, a cascade or rain curtains. It is expected to be the fourth of its type in the world, after Las Vegas, Macau and the future Han Show in Wuhan, mainland China.
The show is expected to project “the soul of Dubai,” and will have Arab-inspired elements, such as Arab music and acrobatics, according to Franco Dragone, founder, artistic director and president of Franco Dragone Entertainment Group. Dragone had previously worked on a show called ‘Story of a Fort Legacy of a Nation,” which was part of the Qasr Al Hosn Festival in Abu Dhabi this year.
The circular theatre will have a large 12-metre deep pool in its centre. Performers will dive into a 5.5 metre-deep pool. The theatre will have 1314 seats.
The theatre will treat attendees like “VIPs”, and they will have a “special relationship with the show,” Dragone said.
