Paris Merveilles Lido 2015

Finally, after months of expectation and wait, IT IS HERE!!!


The Lido de Paris surprises us with their new show: “Paris Merveilles”, which means Paris Wonders. We have made a post last year called New Lido Show 2015 and another one from his creator, Mr. Franco Dragone.

The exceptional machinery gives life to breathtaking sets. An entire city is transformed before your eyes, blurring the boundaries of space and time. A fantastical journey in which the emblems of the capital are scattered through the various scenes. The upbeat choreographies led by the famous Bluebell Girls and Lido Boys succeed one another at a frenzied pace. The extravagant hats and magnificent costumes are decorated with beautiful feathers and sparkle with a thousand lights. Dare to take a new look at Art Nouveau, stopover at the foot of our famous Iron Lady, admire the fashion shows, and much more.

Who is Franco Dragone?


Who is Franco Dragone?

He is “just” the creator and artistic director of Dragone, company which creates events and shows all around the world. Celine Dion and Cirque du Soleil is also part of his work, where he is also known for.

Born in 1952 is an Italian-Belgian theatre director. He is the founder and the artistic director of Dragone, a company that creates shows and events all around the world.

“Adagio”, music video for Lara Fabian’s song was directed by Dragone back in 1999.

Right after this, in 2000 he formed his own company: Dragone, based in Belgium. Céline Dion was his new live show during 2003, called “A New Day”, which opened at Caesars Palace, thus continuing his association with Las Vegas.

For his next debut in 2005, his fourth production on the Las Vegas Strip, he amused us with the opening of “Le Rêve” at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Below you will find a video and some pictures from this amazing experience.








Franco Dragone was in charge of the opening ceremony show for the 2010 South American Games that took place in Medellín, Colombia on March 19, 2010. The main themes of the show were inspired by Medellin’s culture, business and geography.

On March 29, 2012 he was awarded the doctor honoris causa degree for general merits by the University of Antwerp, in recognition of his innovative and cosmopolitan approach of theatre.

Dragone most recently directed a Macau-based show entitled The House of Dancing Water, which bills itself as the world’s largest permanent water-based show.

November 31st is the last show from the Lido de Paris, as they have contracted Franco to re-make their whole show. so we will be able to get blown away from a completely new show starting April 2015.


In 2014, Dragone will open The Han Show, celebrating the essence of the Han culture. The Han Show Theater, designed by Mark Fisher, and inspired by the “Red Lantern” is 60 meters high, 100 meters in diameter and houses more than 2000 seats.
