HBO, MGM Resorts and WET Design have debuted a show that brings to life the music and imagery of Game of Thrones. With a new, limited-run event that plays twice nightly at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., fans can experience the on-screen fantasy realm with an immersive production in Las Vegas at the Fountains of Bellagio.
With the eighth and final season of the series premiering April 14, entertainment brands MGM Resorts and HBO have collaborated to showcases Game of Thrones and the Fountains of Bellagio through music, pyrotechnics and video projections on water. With the lake set ablaze, WET Design, the fountain’s original creators, also worked with Game of Thrones' composer Ramin Djawadi to design a custom score that incorporates the show’s theme song, while developing a theatrical production that captures its drama and suspense.
The production design features a composition of nearly 800 fountains overlaid with pyrotechnics and special effects, as well as motion picture projections. Also adding to the production, the fountains interpret some of Game of Thrones visuals like the green glow of wildfire, falling snow and blue flames. Viewers can see the series' emblems come to life in the water, including a crown, as water jets articulate the arches of a headpiece, and a throne, as cannon sprays crisscross. Visuals will also interpret HBO’s inspiring graphics, including projections of Viserion and the Night King, whose silhouettes at the culmination of the show and provide dramatic tease for the final season.
