HAT Entertainment, the dynamic international entertainment company, has proudly announced that it is officially launching in the UAE by bringing the most ambitious aquatic show ever produced and first travelling water circus in the Middle East to Dubai Festival City Mall’s Festival Bay, from 29th September 2022 onwards.
Founded by Thierry Antonios and Izak Abou Sari, HAT Entertainment comprises a passionate team of events experts who specialise in producing state-of-the-art stage shows, providing innovative entertainment solutions across the Middle East. Equipped with a comprehensive database of artists and a market-leading catalogue of acts and facilities, HAT Entertainment delivers world-class, cutting-edge productions that are quite simply breath-taking.
Led by Managing Partner, Thierry Antonios, HAT Entertainment is set to transform the live entertainment and events landscape across Dubai and the UAE through its spectacular and awe-inspiring live shows and circus performances, starting with Fontana, a one-of-a-kind aquatic experience produced by Cirque Du Liban.
A veteran of event production, Thierry lives, breathes, and loves all things live entertainment, having amassed over 14 years of extensive experience and expertise across the entertainment and events sector, while leading UAE-based HAT Entertainment, Saudi Arabia-based Live Show Arabia, and Lebanon-based Cirque Du Liban. Thierry and fellow Managing Partner Izak Abou Sari even founded Lebanon’s first circus school, The Cirque Du Liban School, designed to help teenagers find their talents, hone their skills and discover their passions.
“I am very proud to finally launch HAT Entertainment here in the UAE, and to do so in such a spectacular way, by bringing the Fontana travelling water circus to Dubai, is a dream come true. Together with our talented performers, choreographers, production team, event partners, and everyone who works so hard behind the scenes, we have put together a truly phenomenal live spectacle,” commented Thierry Antonios..
“We cannot wait to thrill audiences with Fontana’s intricate combination of choreography, art and technology, in our tailor-made Aquatic Theatre inside a custom-designed circus tent. I encourage everyone to stay tuned to our online channels over the coming weeks and months, as these Fontana shows are just the beginning of HAT Entertainment’s journey here in the UAE, and we are set to unveil lots more exciting live events across the Emirates in the near future,” he added.
An awe-inspiring spectacle, Fontana brings the magic world of water to life before the audience’s eyes, through a breath-taking blend of live entertainment, artistic circus performances, captivating special effects, amazing aerialists, and much, much more.
The family-friendly aquatic extravaganza is suitable for ages two years and above, with adults and children required to hold a valid ticket to enter the circus tent. Seating is arranged in a grand-stand format, ensuring everyone has optimum, uninterrupted sightlines of the performances. Ticket-holders are encouraged to arrive early, as doors will open an hour before the performance commences, with ample parking also available on site.
There will be two two-hour performances per day: one matinee show from 3pm onwards and an evening show from 6pm. Tickets are available now at Platinumlist, with five ticket tiers to choose from. .
