Art Form Kabuki Comes To The Bellagio Fountains! FANTASTIC!
Renowned Japanese actor Ichikawa Somegoro will clash with the giant carp from an impressive 165-foot stage constructed inside Lake Bellagio during the 30-minute production, which will run August 14-16.
Shochiku, Japan's premier Kabuki producer and global ambassador - with artistic partners Panasonic, teamLab and WET - and support from MGM Resorts International, aims to raise worldwide awareness for the art by orchestrating an elaborate, high-tech performance unlike anything Las Vegas and traditional Kabuki have ever seen. Projection mapping by Japanese artists and masterminds teamLab and spectacular water effects by WET will bring the historic Japanese narrative to life in a Vegas-style production.
The Kabuki Spectacle performance schedule is as follows:
August 14: 9:15 p.m.
August 15: 9:15 p.m. & 11:30 p.m.
August 16: 9:15 p.m. & 11:30 p.m.
The upcoming Kabuki Spectacle is part of MGM Resorts' larger commitment to celebrating Japanese culture and the arts, which also includes recently debuted art installations by renowned sculptor Masatoshi Izumi and the first-ever Japanese-inspired display at Bellagio's Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
