Wonder and whimsy but make it wet…

Roll up, roll up Abu Dhabi — the acrobatic, aquatic, circus spectacular, Fontana is rolling into town with shows starting this Eid al-Fitr and tickets starting at just Dhs90.

The big top

Following a hugely successful run in Dubai, Fontana — the Middle East’s first travelling water circus, has now embarked on the Abu Dhabi leg of its UAE tour with performances taking place in a ‘Circus Tent’ at Marina Mall. The viewing venue will include a grandstand, offering tiered seating to ensure nobody misses out on the jaw-dropping action.

The exquisitely choreographed experience was produced by Cirque du Liban, is brought to you by HAT Entertainment, and combines a thrilling blend of mind-bending illusion, astounding acrobatics, and feats courting visceral visual awe.
