The Flying Piano steals the show at the Dubai EXPO

The popular Dubai EXPO runs from 1 October 2021 - 31 March 2022

Visitors at this year's Dubai EXPO are being treated to an incredible new music attraction – the Flying Piano show.

Remarkably, the piano does not appear to be held up by any strings or visible equipment. The only two things visible to the shocked audience below are the piano and Italian pianist Eleanora Costantini, who wears a beautiful long gown that appears to be hiding the secrets of just how the piano appears to be floating.



Costantini tells the Expo News Service that she has been training to play this piano at the EXPO for over a year. “These live shows represent a real connection between the musician and the audience. I started training for these flying shows about a year ago, and I find it really exciting,” she said.

The 'Flying Piano' can be seen at the Dubai EXPO up until February 2022.

How do you think the piano is elevated? Do you think the mechanics are hidden under her gown? Or do you have another theory?
