Most of the about 50 workers that remained employed at the suspended House of Dancing Water show in City of Dreams will be ‘transferred to other positions within the group’, Melco Resorts & Entertainment told Macau News Agency.
Inaugurated in 2010, The House of Dancing Water show was suspended indefinitely by Melco Resorts in November last year with more than 130 non-resident workers dismissed, but with 50 remaining employed.
The Melco Resorts show was expected to resume operations in January after a revamp by creator Franco Dragone, however, the suspension was maintained as the pandemic progressed and the remaining workers’ contracts were set to expire this month.
“The pandemic has had a major impact on the entertainment industry. Given current travel restrictions, The House of Dancing Water show will continue on a hiatus for longer than previously anticipated. The colleagues who have been working in support of the theatre and remained employed since the Show was suspended have been offered alternatives. Most were presented new career opportunities and will be transferred to other positions within the group,” Melco told MNA in a reply.
“We would like to thank all our House of Dancing Water colleagues for their support, and we look forward to bringing the iconic show back to Macau as soon as conditions allow”.
