KABUKI Spectacle at FOUNTAINS OF BELLAGIO Koi-Tsukami “Fight with a Carp”
The day finally came! The first performance of Koi-Tsukami (Fight with a Carp) was staged in the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas on 14th of August.
The performance was held IN the fountain. Can you imagine? We’ve shared some pictures here:

The projection mapping was done by Team Lab, the renown Japanese “Ultra-technologists” group.
Male actors play both male and female roles in Kabuki. Yonesuke played a princess Kozakura-hime. He was an absolute knockout!
The contrast of the fountains and stage created such a dynamic, fascinating effect.
Approximately 10,000 people in the audience were transfixed by the show that night.
