Venetian Light Storm debuts in Macau

Written by Yuci Tai

The Venetian Macao has brought its iconic, free-admission carnival festivities back for a fourth year with an exciting array of brand new performances at the integrated resort’s outdoor lagoon area as part of The Venetian Carnevale 2014. Supported by the Macau Government Tourist Office, The Venetian Carnevale has transformed the Venetian lagoon into a fun-filled Italian carnival, with celebrations and festivities ongoing from 28 March to 13 April.

A highlight of this year’s exciting line-up at The Venetian Carnevale is the lagoon spectacular Venetian Light Storm, featuring the Lords of Lightning. One of the most unique and fascinating shows ever to appear in Macau, Venetian Light Storm harnesses four 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 performance also includes flame effects and pyrotechnics, plus electrostatic images, lightning and other effects projected onto a water screen. This is the first time the Lords of Lightning have appeared in Asia, making this a must-see attraction.

Festive activities also include the Tunnel of Lights, non-stop street entertainment, a carousel, speed spray painting, live musical performances by a marching band, arts and crafts workshops as well as a delicious range of Italian meals and snacks.
