PANDA! to Open 1/7 at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas
PANDA!, an unprecedented theatrical spectacular, will open at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas, Tuesday, Jan. 7. The new resident show, from acclaimed director An Zhao, will debut on the famed Las Vegas Strip direct from Beijing, where it was produced.
PANDA! was produced by a team whose impressive credits include the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The hold-on-to-your-seat spectacle combines high-flying acrobatics, mesmerizing martial arts, music and dance, and includes a talented cast of award-winning performers from China National Acrobatic Troupe and Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe.
"We're very pleased to present an authentically Chinese show to the international audiences Las Vegas is known to attract," said Zhao. "We have a wonderful cast of world-class performers whose talent is boundless."
A new spin on a timeless tale, this one-of-a-kind production artfully mixes traditional Chinese themes with unprecedented theatrical effects.
"If you were awestruck by the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, this show is for you," said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer for The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo.
PANDA! will perform Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at The Palazzo Theater. For up-to-date schedule information, including dark dates, or to purchase tickets ($48-$128) visit any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, or go online to www.venetian.com/panda, or call 702.414.9000.
