LA PERLE BY DRAGONE

After dazzling the world with shows like The House of Dancing Water in Macau and Le Rêve (‘The Dream’) in Las Vegas, Franco Dragone now adds Dubai to its repertoire, with its live masterpiece, La Perle. With 65 world-class performers from 23 countries, La Perle takes the viewers on a story inspired by the spirit of Dubai. There’s wicked lighting, extraordinary stunts, diving and flying, all on an ‘aqua-stage’. You’ve got to go to find out what we’re on about.

Tips & Toes’ treatment of the month is its aptly named Perfect Christmas mani-pedi. It’s fully loaded with anti-oxidant-packed ingredients to moisturise and regenerate damaged skin. We’re talking strawberry and apple extracts, walnut shell, jojoba oil and aloe vera. Protect your skin from the (slight) UAE winter chill.
