There was something fishy going on this past weekend in the lake in front of the Bellagio and its unique occurrence made waves in the high-tech entertainment arena. Spectacular performances pairing the ancient Japanese art form of Kabuki with larger-than-life animations and stunning water choreography debuted Friday, Saturday and Sunday on Lake Bellagio. Famed Kabuki actor Ichikawa Somegoro starred in an extraordinary rendition of the Kabuki masterpiece Koi Tsukami or “Fight with a Carp” as the Fountains of Bellagio were transformed into an epic battle scene via projection mapping by Japanese masterminds teamLab. Somegoro clashed with the giant carp from an impressive 165-foot stage constructed inside Lake Bellagio during the 30-minute production, which ran August 14-16.
Shochiku, Japan's premier Kabuki producer and global ambassador - with artistic partners Panasonic, teamLab and WET - and support from MGM Resorts International, aimed to raise worldwide awareness for the art by orchestrating this elaborate, high-tech performance unlike anything Las Vegas and traditional Kabuki had ever seen. TeamLab’s projection mapping together with spectacular water effects by WET brought the historic Japanese narrative to life in a Vegas-style production that also showed MGM Resorts’ dedication to different world cultures.
On August 8, to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Xanadu, Olivia Newton-John and her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, unveiled a music video collaboration for their new dance single “You Have to Believe.” The track draws inspiration from Newton-John’s #1 hit “Magic” with new verses written by Chloe while Olivia sings the familiar chorus, “You have to believe we are magic…” August 8 is the actual day on which the musical fantasy was released in movie theaters in 1980. This is the first video collaboration between mother and daughter. Ironically, it was on the set of Xanadu that Olivia met her first husband and Chloe’s father, Matt Lattanzi, who was a dancer in several musical numbers in the film. The debut of the music video was held at Share Nightclub in Las Vegas, which is where it was filmed. The club was transformed into a modern-day Xanadu for the occasion.
Speaking of Australia, from where Newton-John hails, Australian-based erotic male strip show, Aussie Hunks, will be opening this coming week downtown at the D. Aussie Hunks represents the next generation of male revue. Comprised of Australia’s top eight classically-trained dancers in hip-hop, break and street dance, the hunks will tantalize American audiences for the first time. As seen on Australia’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance Australia, the group takes male revue to a whole new level. Patrons can enjoy 75-minutes of pop, lock and droppin’ fun as the men explode with seduction and world-class choreography set to chart-topping music of all genres.
I went to see Jimmy Darren’s show over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it, just as I enjoyed Tony Orlando’s show the weekend before. By the way, here’s an interesting tidbit of information. When Tony was an A&R guy in the record business, he received the song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” from the composers of the tune. He offered it to both Jimmy and Bobby Vinton but they both turned it down. And the rest, as they say, is history, with the song becoming Orlando’s signature hit.
It was in mid-June that the musical world and Las Vegas lost the very talented composer/singer/producer Larry Hart, who died very suddenly at age 57. Besides having been a Grammy Award-winner, he was also the creator of a stage show called “Sisterella,” the only show that Michael Jackson was ever one of the producers of. He is sorely missed by his friends, one of those being international superstar Engelbert Humperdinck, whom Larry composed music for and with. Larry even lived in Engelbert’s home in England for a spell while they wrote together. Shortly after Larry’s death, I was on Facebook and found this beautiful tribute to Larry written by Engelbert, who writes incredible poetry and quotes:
Gone with a whim...with an urge not desire,
Suddenly destroyed like the ashes of fire
A heart full of love with a soul so endearing
Closed all too soon, a shock unbelieving...
To unravel the motive for the whole world to see
Like an undying love of a mother to be
What's in a mind that can take what was grand
In a moment of despair with the touch of a hand
Gone with a whim for God to have and to hold
Of a memory with love that will never grow old.

Even the smallest donation can help one of our many families with the daily necessities that so many of us take for granted.”
