Franco Dragone

 Theatre director

Dragone is a Belgian film and theatre director, whose world-wide visibility greatly increased in the early 1990s when he introduced the cutting-edge Cirque du Soleil in Mystère at the Treasure Island Hotel in Las Vegas. This production, which Dragone directed, completely changed the style of live shows in Las Vegas.

The Cirque du Soleil benefited greatly from his input, and although he only directed one other show in Las Vegas (O in 1998), to many fans he was the face of Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.

Franco Dragone also directed Cirque du Soleil's first film Alegria - An Enchanting Fable in 1997.
