The multi-billion dirham Al Habtoor City development will also feature a one ofa- kind entertainment theatre. The Al Habtoor Group and Franco Dragone Entertainment Group have teamed up to bring a touch of Las Vegas to Dubai. The two well-known names will offer the only permanent waterbased theatre production between Las Vegas and Macau. Franco Dragone, whose name is synonymous with the entertainment world, was the mastermind behind the Cirque du Soleil productions before starting his own company in 2000. Dragone is already a big hit in the UAE, following his Abu Dhabi creation and visual poem ‘Story of a Fort, Legacy of a Nation’.

The venue of the purpose-built theatre, designed by Paris-based designer Jean Rabasse, will open in 2016. The theatre auditorium will be 30 metres high and have a capacity of 1,400 unique seats. Lights, sounds and water elements will come together at the Dubai theatre to create an extravagant and spectacular show.
