Game of Thrones main soundtrack is possibly the most beautiful piece ever written for a television series. Though I have to say that I find that the grandeur does quite seem fit the theme of the series. Anywho… not withstanding my point of view, I am kind of captivated by what HBO, MGM Resorts and WET Design have done with the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas. The three companies have come together to bring an impressive fountain show unlike no other.
The Game of Thrones Fountains of Bellagio Show is a spectacular visual symphony that combines the cool fountain maneuver, pyrotechnics, and motion picture theater-quality projections with the beautiful music of the series. Speaking of music, a custom score, incorporating the show’s iconic theme song, was composed specifically for this mesmerizing fountain light show.
“The production design marries the precise choreography of nearly 800 fountains overlaid with advanced pyrotechnics and special effects, including motion picture theater-quality projections. From the green glow of Wildfire and falling snow, to the undead dragon soaring above Lake Bellagio breathing vibrant blue flames that set the waters ablaze, and the crashing fall of The Wall, The Fountains interpret some of the most memorable visuals of Game of Thrones in entirely new ways. Viewers can see the series’ emblems come to life in water, including the crown, as illuminated water jets perfectly articulate the arches of a headpiece, and the throne, as intricate cannon sprays crisscross. Dynamic visuals interpreting HBO’s awe-inspiring graphics include projections of Viserion and the Night King, whose silhouettes culminate the show and provide a dramatic tease to the final season.”
The silhouette of the dragon, particularly the one that breathes fire, was quite a sight to behold. Fun fact: this is also the first time the lake is set ablaze. Yes. We are talking about real fire here. Now, that’s kind of cool, isn’t it?
The Game of Thrones Fountains of Bellagio show is a limited-run event that runs twice nightly at 8 PM and 9.30 PM from now through to April 13 – a day before the series season finale premiere on April 14. And it is happening at Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A., obviously.
