EIGHTY plus eager entertainers brushed off the shackles of the COVID pandemic to jet out to paradise and pull off a remarkable international show-business coup. 

The have-a-go Area 51 performers ended almost a year of isolation by making a splash at luxury Indian Ocean holiday resorts in the Maldives and it was a monumental effort that involved them dealing with mountains of medical and international clearances, COVID tests and complex logistics.

But their dogged attitude prevailed as Area 51 provided first class Maldives entertainment across six separate islands in the stunning archipelago set among the azure waters of the Arabian Sea area of the Indian Ocean south west of Sri Lanka.

A troupe of performers staged a series of sizzling Greatest Showman themed events on Amilla Fushi as well as a quite brilliant and futuristic Tron and robot themed package on at the luxury Waldorf Astoria resort, where we took up residency for 3 weeks.

Area 51 had another crew of performers on five-star Finolhu, the newly revamped Baa Atoll destination, and a Roaring Twenties show to the Anantara Kihavah resort.

More Area 51 performers descended on the Raffles resort on the idyllic island of Meradhoo, with a series of events over a 20 night period, and we returned one again to the incredible Reeth Rah with a selection of truly beautiful dance performances complimented by a World-class team of fabulous cabaret and unique Circus shows.

Across the different destinations, the performers worked extensively throughout Christmas, New Year and Russian Orthodox Christmas in January and Area 51 director Matt Page remarked: “It was a great achievement to have so many of our performers out there against all the odds and to have them perform in fully COVID-safe environments.

“We had to jump through a lot of hoops and yet, ironically, it was our busiest and most ambitious ever project to bring entertainment to the Maldives for which everyone involved was truly grateful.”
