Macau casino operator Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd has confirmed to GGRAsia that it is suspending performances of its long-running show The House of Dancing Water for around two months. The House of Dancing Water is based at the City of Dreams complex, a casino resort in the Cotai district of Macau.
The show’s online schedule indicated there would be no performances from February 12 until April 24 inclusive.
A Melco Resorts spokesperson told GGRAsia in an email: “To continue delivering the most dynamic and entertaining world-class production, we will temporarily suspend the show after the Chinese New Year holiday until late April for refurbishment and upgrade of our facilities. We will be back to deliver the most premium, pioneering and exceptional experience to our audience very soon.”
The spokesperson said more than 5 million people had seen The House of Dancing Water and described it as Macau’s favourite show since its 2010 premiere. The House of Dancing Water is the longest-running resident show in Macau and is the work of Italian-Belgian director Franco Dragone.
Last month, Melco Resorts chairman and chief executive Lawrence Ho Yau Lung said Elēkrŏn, a new non-gaming offering at the firm’s Studio City property – described by him as a car stunt show – would be less susceptible to displaying “cultural insensitivities” than some previous non-gaming entertainment in the Macau market.
