PANDA! World Premiere Set for Palazzo Las Vegas this December
PANDA!, an unprecedented theatrical spectacular, will make its world premiere at The Palazzo Las Vegas this December. The first ever Chinese-produced show to take up a Las Vegas residency, PANDA! promises to dazzle the senses by combining high-flying acrobatics, kung fu mastery, music, and dance, transporting audiences to a realm of Far Eastern folklore. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 1.
"PANDA! is a one-of-a-kind production that will leave audiences in awe," said director An Zhao. "We've taken two of China's National Treasures, pandas and kung fu, and illuminated them in a visually stunning production that tells an unforgettable and timeless story. Our team couldn't be happier to bring this experience to the international audiences Las Vegas is known to attract."
PANDA! follows the heroic quest of Long Long, a warm and caring panda on a quest to rescue his beloved Peacock Princess from the malicious Demon Vulture, who has kidnapped her on their wedding day. In the face of desperation, Long Long seeks counsel from Immortal Old Kung Fu Man, who prepares him for the dangerous mission to save his true love. Confronted by hardship, danger, pain, and temptation, Long Long must overcome universal obstacles to defeat Demon Vulture and restore peace and balance.
Produced by a team whose impressive credits include the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, PANDA! will perform at The Palazzo Theater. PANDA!'s talented cast features award-winning performers from China National Acrobatic Troupe, Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe, and China Star Dance Troupe.
"The Venetian|The Palazzo has a longstanding reputation for providing the best world-class entertainment to Las Vegas audiences," said John Caparella, President and Chief Operating Officer, The Venetian|The Palazzo & Sands Expo. "PANDA! is a mesmerizing cultural production that we're thrilled to welcome to our property."
