Melco’s The House of Dancing Water revamp to be supported by Our Legacy Creations

Melco Resorts & Entertainment will partner with Our Legacy Creations (OLC) to revive the City of Dreams ‘The House of Dancing Water’ show.

The show has been suspended since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Melco previously noting the production would return in late 2024. The new announcement did not, however, provide an exact timeline for the reopening of the show.

Created by the late theater artist and developer Franco Dragone, ‘The House of Dancing Water’ production was staged in a purpose-built theater at City of Dreams with a stage pool holding approximately 3.7 million gallons of water, equivalent to five Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Melco’s commitment to resurrect the show was included as part of the firm’s MOP11.8 billion ($1.5 billion) spending commitment to the Macau government in return for a new 10-year casino concession.

In an announcement, Las Vegas-based entertainment producing company OLC indicated the collaboration signified more than just the return of the event but a ‘commitment to modernizing the theater to enchant future audiences’.

OLC was created by five entertainment industry veterans and former Dragone professionals after the death of the show producer in 2022.

‘It is a privilege for us to support Lawrence Ho and Melco in bringing this creative masterpiece and cultural icon of Macau back to life,’ Anna Robb, partner at OLC says in the statement.

The announcement only added that as Macau evolves its entertainment offerings, the revamped ‘The House of Dancing Water‘ will mobilize a ‘global consortium of talent’, that could help the production remain a ‘benchmark of excellence in the entertainment world of Macau’.
