A World Premier Night at PANDA ! in The Venetian Las Vegas and The Palazzo Las Vegas Resorts makes Las Vegas History .
We were fortunate to have seen a preview of PANDA ! during the resort’s Winter in Venice Festival and were intrigued with what we saw. As the weeks went by we waited with great anticipation of the world premier and what a night it was.
The opening night started with a reception hosted by our very cute and cuddly Panda friends. In addition to our hosts from the bamboo forests, many members of China National Acrobatic Troupe who are masters from the Shaolin Temple and the birthplace of Kung Fu greeted the world premier guests from Beijing and around the world.
The Palazzo Theater was buzzing with excitement as guests took their seats for a first look at the newest show on the famed Las Vegas strip. The bamboo curtains opened and our journey with LongLong Panda began. LongLong, is a true Panda in every sense of the word with his warm and caring nature.

The show takes the audience along on his mission to rescue his beloved and beautiful Peacock Princess from the evil and mean Demon Vulture, who kidnapped her on their wedding day. Heartbroken, LongLong seeks guidance from an Old Man, along with monks who specialize in martial arts to prepare the love sick panda for his mission to save his future wife.
This incredible show features gymnastics from world champion artists, acrobats, martial arts, breathtaking dance, music and a multi-layered LED wall that runs the length of the stage.
PANDA! is the classic story of good overcoming evil that takes the audience on an emotional roller-coaster leading to an epic battle where the victor gets the girl or in this case the Peacock princess.
Director An Zhao and his team behind the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics has done an amazing job with PANADA ! , the first-ever Chinese produced show to have a residency in Las Vegas. This show is unlike any show you will see in Las Vegas and will be a hit for young and old alike for years to come.
