PANDA! at The Palazzo
PANDA!, the newest resident show at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas, is an original production direct from Beijing. While incorporating the culture of China, it also tells the timeless story of love, good versus evil, overcoming fear and realizing inner strength.
PANDA! is about a loving and caring panda and his beloved princess. Pandas are native to China and a beloved animal representing love and kindness. In PANDA!, the main character, LongLong, is set to marry his Peacock Princess. Their wedding day begins with joy and happiness, but it is soon overshadowed by darkness when LongLong witnesses his beloved kidnapped by the evil Demon Vulture. LongLong then embarks on a journey to find and rescue his love.
Produced by An Zhao, who also produced the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, PANDA! includes performers from the China National Acrobatic Troupe and Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe including a captivating 7-year-old boy.
