The Venetian Carnevale is Macao’s definitive destination event and has transformedthe Venetian lagoon into a fun-filled Italian carnival, with high calibre live performances, family-friendly entertainment and activities, as well as delicious meals and snacks.The Carnevale has become one of the annual signature events to drive visitations to Macao. A highlight of this year’s program was the lagoon spectacular, Venetian Light Storm, featuring the Lords of Lightning. One of the most unique and fascinating shows ever to appear in Macao, Venetian Light Storm harnessed 4 million volts of live raw electricity into a mystical flow of oscillating chaos, with two performers weaving shards of coruscating electricity into a fluid dance before breaking out into a primal battle of crackling energy.The Lords of Lightning succeeded in amusing the audiences with their Asia debut at The Venetian Macao, leaving them jaw dropped and breathless at the end of the show.
