To commemorate the Year of the Horse, the resort’s floral and horticulture department worked with a team of artisans, and consulted with a Feng Shui master, to produce the massive “Year of the Horse” art installation. Guests are invited to visit the captivating beauty this display in The Waterfall Atrium & Gardens of The Palazzo.

PANDA!, an unprecedented theatrical spectacular, is the featured production for CHINESE NEW YEAR at The Venetian and The Palazzo. The new resident show, from acclaimed director An Zhao, is direct from Beijing, where it 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.

A new spin on a timeless tale, this one-of-a-kind production artfully mixes traditional Chinese themes with unprecedented theatrical effects, making it the most high-tech production on the Las Vegas Strip.
