Dubai’s Cavalli Club played host to the world famous LIDO on May 2 and 3, the first time the cabaret and burlesque show from Paris has come to the Middle East.

With the likes of Elton John, Laurel & Hardy, Edith Piaf and Sylvie Vartan having all performed at the famous Champs Elysees venue during 50 years of tremendous success, the weekend promised to be one of colour, style and intrigue. And the team didn’t disappoint.

Our photographers were there to capture the best of the action.
