‘Ballet Under The Stars’ at Desert Palm PER AQUUM Arabesque Avant-garde

Kicking off the 2017 line-up for PULSE, PER AQUUM’s stream of immersive guest experiences, is a star-studded dance event - both overhead and on the stage.  One of the world’s most iconic ballerinas, Lucia Lacarra, headlines ‘Ballet Under The Stars’ at Desert Palm PER AQUUM in Dubai.  With performances on 26 and 27 January, sparks will fly as Lucia’s husband and long-time dance partner, Marlon Dino, joins her onstage.

In association with the Covent Garden Dance Company, Lacarra and Dino will join a troupe of the world’s most extraordinary ballet stars from The Royal Danish Ballet, The English National Ballet, Staatsballett and Ballet Bejart for two nights only under the stars in the mesmerising setting of Desert Palm PER AQUUM’s lush Arabian lawn with a backdrop of the glittering Dubai skyline.

Other star performers include Ksenia Ovsyanick, a principal with Berlin’s Staatsballett, and Zdenek Konvalina, a former principal of the English National Ballet, as well as international soloists hailing from countries such as Iceland, Italy and Russia.

‘Ballet Under The Stars’ follows the success of ‘Motions of the Ocean’, a series of open air gala ballet performances at Desert Palm PER AQUUM’s sister resorts in the Maldives.  The first ever ballet to be performed in the island nation, first soloist Xander Parish topped the bill with a handpicked group of soloists comprised of dancers from St Petersburg's Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky Theatres, including Oksana Bondareva and Yekaterina Chebykina.
